June 14, 2019

 

 

*Updated 06/28/2019 to reflect the addition of shuttle services, to indicate over-sized vehicles must go directly to the shuttle lot during this time, provide location of shuttle parking lot, and that barricades will be located north and south of Horseshoe Bend along Highway 89.

 

 

There have been multiple parking issues at Horseshoe Bend that have posed multiple issues to public safety, including the parking lot filling causing a backup of traffic onto Highway 89.

 

This year, the Page Police Department and the City of Page will be implementing traffic changes from July 4 through July 7 to help address these issues and improve public safety.

 

Here are some of the temporary changes you will encounter at Horseshoe Bend over the 4th of July weekend:

  • There will be multiple electronic signs in both directions providing you with up-to-date traffic and parking information

  • Making a left turn into Horseshoe Bend from Northbound 89 will not be allowed; access will be blocked

    • You will have to drive down toward WalMart and go around the roundabout (traffic circle) to make a right-hand turn into the parking lot

  • Speeds in the area may be reduced

  • Police officers will be directing traffic starting at 7am and continuing until 7pm or later if necessary

  • Oversized vehicles such as RVs and vehicles with trailers will not be allowed into the parking lot. Only commercial tour buses and shuttles will be allowed access.

    • ​These vehicles must go directly to the shuttle lot located on Highway 98 during this time.

  • No matter the time of year you are not allowed to park along Highway 89, however this does still occur. To prevent this, the Page Police Department and the City of Page will be placing barricades along the shoulders north and south of Horseshoe Bend.

 

Shuttle Services

Shuttle services will be available and will be operated by Aramark. The shuttle lot will be open from July 4th through July 7th from 8am until 7pm, with the last pickup from Horseshoe Bend being at 8pm. 

 

  • There will be a charge of $3 per person for the shuttle service and you can pay by either cash or credit.
