PAGE, Ariz. – A section of US-89 near Page, Ariz., collapsed on Wednesday, forcing drivers to take a detour.

Officials say the 150-foot section buckled because of some sort of geological event.

Drivers headed to Page now need to take a 45-mile detour.

The Arizona Dept. of Transportation says they don’t know how long it will take to repair the road.
