MOAB — A project to repave and repair roads at Arches and Canyonlands national parks, and Hovenweep and Natural Bridges national monuments, is set to begin next week.

Work will begin at Arches National Park and the Island in the Sky district of Canyonlands the week of June 20, then progress to the Needles district of Canyonlands, then on to Hovenweep and Natural Bridges.

The project will be conducted in stages: crack sealing, road cleaning and patching followed by resurfacing and lane painting.

Travel delays of up to 15 minutes are anticipated, and pilot cars and flaggers will be used to direct traffic when lane closures are necessary.

Work in Arches will take place at the visitor center, Balanced Rock and Sand Dune Arch parking lots.

Work at Canyonlands, Hovenweep and Natural Bridges will include all paved parking lots, trailheads, pullouts, overlooks and campgrounds.

Visitors are encouraged to visit the parks' official websites before traveling and to stop at park visitor centers for updated information.
