Catstair Canyon Rip Rap
Grand Staircase-Escalante 
Highway 89
Utah
March 2024


Originally constructed as an attempt to fill a highway gap, the pile of old crushed cars have been wired together to help prevent erosion on the sandy hill during storms. The cars are known as the Catstair Rip Rap or Detroit Rip Rap, constructed in the 1960s.
