Signed as U.S. 89A and legislatively designated as Utah State Route 11, U.S. 89 Alternate extends north from Fredonia, Arizona to connect with U.S. 89 in Kanab. The 2.945 mile long route in Utah joins Kanab with Kanab Municipal Airport (KNB) and U.S. 89A south and then east toward the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Changes were made to emphasize the U.S. 89A designation by 2011.
