Fault Zone

A car approaches a corner on the U.S. Highway 89A switchbacks in Oak Creek Canyon, where prehistoric slippage along the Oak Creek fault zone creates a small ravine.

State Route 89A between Flagstaff and Sedona will experience full overnight closures Tuesday and Wednesday night and daytime lane restrictions on Thursday, according to a media release.

The overnight closures, which are required to allow for drainage work, are between Pine Flats Campground (milepost 386) and the lookout point (milepost 390) from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.

The Arizona Department of Transportation suggests those traveling between Sedona and Flagstaff to instead use Interstate 17 and State Road 179.

Crews are scheduled to return Thursday, June 13, to perform a “fog seal” that will help extend the life of the pavement. This work will occur on the same section of roadway between 5 a.m. and 9 p.m. and will require lane closures, flaggers and pilot cars to direct drivers through the work zone. Drivers are advised to expect long delays.
