US191 update:

Updated on September 24th, 2019

The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) has begun a two-mile safety improvement project on U.S. Highway 191 between La Sal Junction and Hole-‘N’-The-Rock that will require regular road closures to accommodate blasting.  US-191 approximately 15 miles south of Moab, and 35 miles north of Monticello.  Start Milepost: 107 - End Milepost: 109

The project aims to improve recovery for vehicles that wander from the travel lanes by excavating into existing rock cuts and upgrading barrier to new standards or removing barrier where slopes can be leveled.  


  • Monday September 23rd  -Blast time 6:15 P.M.
  • Wednesday September 25th -Blast Time 6:15 P.M.
  • Thursday September 26th - Blast Time 6:15 P.M.

Full road closures of up to 45 minutes for blasting may occur MONDAYS through THURSDAYS before 8:30 a.m. and after 5:30 p.m. to protect the safety of both workers and travelers.  Delays of up to an additional 45 minutes are anticipated after the road is reopened to single-lane, alternating traffic.   Blasting may continue for several weeks and is estimated to continue through much of November.

At other times, single lane closures with alternating traffic and delays of up to 20 minutes may be anticipated.

 Blue Notch B2061 Road has a huge boulder that has slid down into the road, a vehicle can squeeze by but it is very doubtful that anything pulling a trailer could make it by this rock and other rocks along the route to Lake Powell. 

There is a sinkhole that swallowed a vehicle requiring a tow truck to remove it over the weekend in the Cottonwood area on the D road system.
