Rockslide closes Zion-Mt. Carmel Highway and tunnel at Zion National Park
SPRINGDALE, UTAH (KSNV) — Heavy rainfall prompted a rockslide in Zion National Park on Saturday night. As a result, some popular canyoneering routes have been closed indefinitely.
The Zion- Mount Carmel Highway was closed after reports of an active rockslide on the switchbacks below the tunnel, according to a news release from Zion National Park.
An inspection early Sunday, March 3, shows a retaining wall failed and 8 feet of the road is severely undercut east of the first switchback.
