Mt. Carmel Highway in Zion National Park Set To Reopen
SPRINGDALE, Utah – The Zion Mt. Carmel Highway will open again after heavy rains caused a retaining wall to fail, forcing the closure.
The road is slated to open at 5 p.m. Wednesday.
According to Zion National Park, the road will be reduced to a single lane at the damaged area and will be managed by traffic signals. Park officials also said there may be intermittent closures as crews continue to repair the road.
The highway is not open to oversize vehicles. Drivers of buses and RVs are instructed to take an alternate route.
While the Mt. Carmel Highway will be open for traffic, other closures or restrictions remain in the park due to winter conditions.
The park reported that SR-9 through the park is open, although no oversize vehicles are permitted. The Kolob Canyons Raod is closed, and only the park shuttle is allowed on the Zion Scenic Drive.
