Know Before You Go - Nine Mile Canyon Road Improvement Project
During 2011-2012, 36 miles of the Nine Mile Canyon Road will be under construction for the purpose of improving the road to further protect cultural resources, improve drainage, and satisfy public safety standards. W.W. Clyde Co. will be installing drainage pipe, widening the existing road, and hard surfacing the road using a double chip seal. An environmentally friendly dust suppressant is being used on the road to control dust until the chip seal is applied. Please expect delays in portions of the canyon until the project is completed. Attached is a Fact Sheet containing more information concerning this project.
