Individuals seeking to avoid traffic delays in the Virgin River Gorge may take Highway 91 as an alternate route. The highway bypasses the gorge entirely, intersecting with I-15 at Beaver Dam/Littlefield, Ariz. to the south, and connecting to St. George at the north via Santa Clara and Sunset Boulevard. See map included in this article.

While traveling through the Utah portion of Old Highway 91, motorists are advised to be mindful of cattle in the area that may wander onto the roadway.
