Zion Canyon to Implement Traffic Control

Published on March 14, 2014 at 11:03AM

Zion National Park expects heavy traffic during the last three weekends of March as a result of spring break, beautiful weather, and Zion Half Marathon participation visitation. During March 15 and 16, March 22 and 23, and March 29 and 30 the park may implement active traffic control along Zion Canyon Scenic Drive to ensure visitor safety and mitigate resource damage. Park visitors should expect long lines at entrance stations and are encouraged to carpool. Zion National Park’s shuttle bus system does not begin operation until April 1. Currently, Zion Canyon is open to vehicular traffic and the high number of visitors is quickly filling the canyon’s parking lots.
