"Geologic Event" causes 150 feet of Arizona highway to collapse!
PHOENIX (CBS5) -
A 150-foot section of U.S. 89 south of Page that buckled and sunk four feet Wednesday might have been caused by a "geologic event," according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

The road collapsed at mile post 526 just 2.5 miles north of the intersection with U.S. 89A, about 25 miles south of page, according to an ADOT spokesman. He said the incident was not related to the weather.

The road was closed in both directions and there was no estimation when the highway would reopen, said an ADOT spokesman.

ADOT officials said northbound U.S. 89 was closed at the U.S. 89A junction, which takes motorists west toward Jacob Lake. In Page, U.S. 89 was closed at the junction with State Route 98.

"Just as you may have been born into a religion, so was Jesus. Like many peep, he looked *outside* that structured belief system for answers; the result of that became his teachings. Those original teachings were edited out of what you think of as the Bible. That which didn't scare people did not serve the church & its agenda"

This article blames the weather:

The storm, which descended from Alaska, might have caused a sink hole more than 120 feet long and 4 feet deep on Arizona 89 south of Page in the Navajo Nation. At least two collisions were reported as a result of the sink hole, according to the state Department of Public Safety. While Arizona 89 is open to Arizona 89A, officials recommend drivers heading to Page take U.S. 160 east 15 miles, then take Arizona 98.

Looks like poor road construction. It was built in the 60's.

Drought? Ground water table reduced causing collapse?
I do recall in Outlaw, Az there was/is a tunnel that crosses the border. It was in some special on 20/20, 60 minutes, or the like many years ago. I think they had the youngest mayor at the time too.

WOW so many guesses and very little facts. So here goes back on Jan 7, 2013 we had an earthquake 3.1 very close to this area of the road collapse, before the 3.1 quake we had a number of quakes in the same area that were under 2.0 for close to 2 weeks give or take a few days. Since the 3.1 nothing has even given a blip till today.

As for weather this storm so far up here as been not much of a big deal we had about 2 inches of snow this morning and it was all gone by lunch time, thats common for this area at this time of year.

This road was just repaved last year and it was one of the better roads around here, and the best way to get from Flagstaff to Page. I will add that last week we did get some rain and they could have got a bit more up that way.

The key thing about this part of the road was its on a very old landslide or collapse of the cliff side, and by old I mean a few thousand years, but you can see weather over the years just added more dirt and rocks to the area and they just plowed across this area 50 years ago or so and laid blacktop. The point is we dont get a lot of rain here and technical this would or should not have been an issue ever, but from what I have heard and seen in pics so far its going to be a major problem. I will be going up there Friday or Sat to see whats up with it, but this road will be closed for a number of weeks or months.
