Road Collapse 89 between Page and Flagstaff

Heads up!

Anyone heading from North to Flagstaff for Grand Canyon or other trips, there was a pretty major road collapse on 89 South of Page. Allow extra time for possible 50+ mile detour through Tuba City.

Checking both Google Maps and Mapquest, each has going to Lees Ferry from Colorado via Hwy 160 through 4 Corners as the same mileage and time whether you turn off 160 onto 98 to Page then south on 89 then north to the Ferry, or you stay on 160 to Tuba City, then turn north to the Ferry.

That's a pretty nasty crack! Melrose, is that a first hand photo?

Not to detract from the road issue, but did anyone else notice the other featured stories on Florida Channel 5 new's website???

Note to self - don't get arrested in Palm Beach or St. Lucie counties or you'll make the front page of the news!
