Old Highway 91

Bureau of Land Management, Utah.

U.S. Highway 91 (“Old Highway 91”) U.S. Highway 91 was the first paved interstate highway to be constructed through southern Utah during the 1920s. Until the construction of Interstate I-15 through the Virgin River Gorge in the 1970s, all travel north-south through southern Utah was via Highway 91. Service stations and overnight tourist camps were located at regular intervals along the roadway, including one within the boundaries of the NCA. It is the only paved road that crosses the Beaver Dam Wash NCA today and affords visitor access to its special resource values and scenic vistas.
