In a text message from Arizona Highway Patrol Sargent John Bottoms, travelers on Northbound I-15 will experience heavy delays, as traffic is currently backed up three miles before reaching the Virgin River Gorge.

With the lanes being reduced to one in each direction due to bridge repairs and road construction, AHP urges all motorists to use extreme caution and allow for extra travel time. The only alternate route around the gorge is through Old Highway 91 through Beaver Dam.
