Owners, employees concerned about their businesses’ survivalMary Ellen Greenrock, a waitress at Junipine Cafe and Grill, serves a group of people visiting from Phoenix on Wednesday,  April 30. Seven of the employees that work at the Junipine Resort in Oak Creek Canyon live in Flagstaff and make the commute every day down the switchbacks to work and will need to travel all the way down into Sedona via Interstate 17 to make it to work during the five weeks when the switchbacks will be closed, from Memorial Day weekend to Fourth of July weekend.

Like most communities, residents and business owners in the Sedona area are used to road construction and the delays that often come with them.


But soon, those same motorists and business owners will be entering uncharted waters — at least in recent memory. That’s because one of the main routes into Sedona will be closed for at least a month with no through traffic.

That area is a 3.5-mile stretch of State Route 89A through Oak Creek Canyon known locally as the switchbacks. It was announced nearly 10 months ago that much-needed work would be done on that stretch of roadway slated for this summer.
