Light at the End of the Tunnel

There is light at the end of the tunnel!  Last October a massive landslide destroyed a section of SR14 in Cedar Canyon.  This is a major road, providing access to Duck Creek, Mammoth Creek and Cedar Breaks National Monument as well as to Kanab and even Lake Powell.  It has been closed since the landslide.

Several weeks ago construction began to repair the road and provide access.  The target was to get the road open by mid to late summer.  On Thursday, May 23rd at 3 PM a dirt road will open up and provide access to those destinations.  This will be a dirt road, and drivers should expect it to be 2 lanes, one going in each direction.

This may not be a road to take your boats over until it is finally completed, but to be honest after nearly 8 months of long detours, there is light at the end of the tunnel!  The road will remain open through all of the Memorial Day Weekend.  After the Holiday weekend, the road will be open beginning May 29th from 7 PM to 7 AM, then close during work hours.  The road will be open on Saturday and Sunday.  Remember that the road will be closed from 7 AM to 7 PM while the workers are working on the road.

So the good news that there will be access, albeit a little restricted as far as times of travel.
