CEDAR CITY, Utah, June 18, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — Crews have repaired the road to Navajo Lake near Cedar City after it was undercut by spring water, officials said.
A news release from Kane County Sheriff’s Office said the road was damaged by water running under the road June 13.
“The heavy snow and water that built up in the soil caused more pressure than normal and the spring undercut the road causing the pictured damage,” the news release said. “The damage was just west of the Navajo Lake Campground.”
The Kane County road crew has been filling and shoring up the bank so the road can be completely reopened, the news release said.
The Navajo Lake road is open to traffic at this time; the crew will come back in the fall and completely rebuild that section of road.
“Thanks to the Cedar Mountain Fire District and Navajo Lake Lodge employees for closing off the damaged part of the road and keeping the visitors safe,” the news release said. “Thanks to the Kane County road crew for all the work they have done on the road.”
