    Most every man would agree, there's nothing like a good haircut and clean shave, the old fashioned kind from an old-school barber. There's a new shop that offers just that, and more.

PAGE, Ariz. (AP) - The Arizona Department of Transportation says a stretch of U.S. 89 in northern Arizona will remain closed indefinitely because of damage to the roadway about 25 miles south of Page.

The Arizona Department of Transportation says engineers are trying to determine what caused a 150-foot section of pavement to buckle

However, ADOT says the cause might be what it calls a "geologic event."

ADOT says major repairs will be required.

In the meantime, traffic is detouring around the closure by using U.S. 160 and State Route 98. That adds 45 miles of driving.
