SR 9 reopens in Zion National Park following rockslide
ZION NATIONAL PARK, Utah — A rockslide blocked both sides of traffic on state Route 9 in Zion National Park Wednesday afternoon.
According to the park’s Twitter, the rockslide happened around 2 p.m. on the Mount Carmel Highway.
S.R. 9 was closed from Canyon Junction to East Entrance as road crews cleared the roads until 6:30 p.m.
The park itself remained open and the shuttle service helped visitors travel around the park.
Park officials said no one was injured in this slide.
The Road Crew and Law Enforcement are in the process of closing SR9 in the interest of public safety due to unstable grounds in/around a rockfall zone that occurred within the past 20-30 minutes.
