US 89T

US 89 had a temporary alignment designated as US 89T in 2013 when a landslide caused US 89 to buckle and subside about 25 miles south of Page. Navajo Route 20 was used as the alignment for US 89T. 28 miles of Route 20 was unpaved, so ADOT quickly got funds to pave the road and the paving was finished in just 79 days. This process was quick due to the fact that the Navajo Nation had already wanted to pave the road for decades and some design and environmental clearances had already been obtained. In March 2015, US 89 was reopened and US 89T was retired and the route was given back to the Navajo Nation. You can view images of the damaged US 89 on the ADOT Flickr:
