US-89 will be closed from 300 North in Kanab to MP 68 Monday through Friday from 8:30 AM to 11:30 AM. Construction begins January 6, 2014 on US-89 North of Kanab between mileposts 65 and 68. Shortly thereafter, the road will be closed to all traffic Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 11:30 am until approximately April 11th.
The road closure is necessary while construction crews blast rock cliffs and clear debris. This will allow for the realignment of US-89 through the area and create a wider and safer roadway. The Utah Department of Transportation is constructing improvements to US-89 from the 300 North intersection in Kanab to the Kanab Creek Bridge near MP 68.
The 3-mile long project will provide:
- Pavement resurfacing
- Wider shoulders
- Shift in roadway alignment in various areas throughout the project
- Acceleration lane at the Port of Entry

Talk about a catch that helps us live up to our name!
A Native American Paiute word that means “Big Fish,” Panguitch undoubtedly earned its name from the large fish caught in the lakes and streams that surround us here. Recently this 13 lb “Big Fish” was caught at Panguitch Lake!
