  1. Default From Las Vegas to Page in February 2012

    We intend to drive from Las Vegas to Page, Cameron and then to Grand Canyon in February 2012 for about 2 weeks. Our concern is that Instate 15 and highway 89 might be closed in February. Please advise. Thanks all.

    Welcome!

    The odds of any of the roads being closed are very slim. However, you may encounter adverse conditions. If you are going to Page from LV, you will be going right through Zion - and the east exit road may be quite dicey - but there's a way around the park to rejoin US-89. That's UT-59 from Hurricane, which becomes AZ-389, to Fredonia, then Alt-89 to Kanab.

    Check on conditions just before you leave and keep abreast of them enroute.

    Default Temporarily at Most

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    The Interstates are the commercial arteries of the this country, especially in the west, and every effort is made to keep them open. Yes there may be short closures during the worst of a winter blizzard, but by that time you should have gotten off the roads anyway. Most disruptions to traffic last a few hours, with closures of a day or more extremely rare. The same can be said for the major US through highways such as US-89, although they may not be as well maintained as the Interstates. So build a possible snow day into your plans, and if you can't continue driving at any point, just stop where you are, put up for the night, and enjoy the white stuff.
