N.R. 20: Outlying students must endure double detour to start school year

Posted: Thursday, Aug 1st, 2013

Students who live in the Marble Canyon and Bitter Springs communities will continue to endure longer bus rides at the start of the 2013-14 school year due to the road collapse of U.S. 89.

After the collapse in February, Page Unified School District students were bused down Navajo Route 20, which included a rough, 27-mile stretch of dirt road.

This summer the Arizona Department of Transportation began paving N.R. 20 to hopefully ease the commute for students and those affected by the closure.

ADOTís Dustin Krugel, said that 20 of the 27 miles is paved and expects the last seven to be finished by mid-August. School starts Aug. 5.
