Sedona News – The Arizona Department of Transportation advises drivers that State Route 89A north of uptown Sedona is now scheduled to remain closed around the clock until Saturday, Dec. 16, as construction crews perform critical clean-up work after recent blasting for rockfall mitigation.
Safety of the traveling public is a key reason for the extended closure of SR 89A between the Owenby Way roundabout and the Midgley Bridge picnic area (mileposts 375-376).
While construction crews are expediting efforts to remove the loose rock on the canyon wall and clear the roadway, the highway closure is scheduled until 6 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 16. These critical operations need to be completed to create safer conditions along SR 89A.
Drivers should continue to plan extra travel time while using State Route 179 and Interstate 17 as a detour route for travel between Sedona and Flagstaff.
