PHOENIX -- The state Transportation Board is considering whether to temporarily designate a 45-mile-long Navajo tribal road as a state highway and improve it so it can be used as an alternate to a closed stretch of US 89 south of Page.

Under the proposal to be considered during a special meeting Thursday, Navajo Route 20 between the Gap and Page would become US 89T.

The design phase of the project would cost $1 million.

US 89 has been closed north of Bitter Springs and south of Page since Feb. 20 because of a landslide that buckled part of the highway on a hillside.

Navajo Route 20 generally parallels US 89.
