SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, June 16, 2017 (Gephardt Daily) — Interstate 80 eastbound in Salt Lake City will be closed this weekend, the Utah Department of Transportation said in a news release.
In addition, UDOT is reminding motorists that State Route 39, the Ogden Canyon Highway, will be closed to all through-traffic on Monday, June 19, while crews perform paving work in the canyon.
Ogden Valley and Ogden area motorists are also reminded that SR-39, the Ogden Canyon Highway, will be closed to all through-traffic on Monday.
Crews will be paving over water line trenches in the canyon that have begun to subside since construction was performed there several years ago, a news release from UDOT said. In order to complete this paving work in one day and keep delay and detouring to a minimum, Ogden Canyon will be closed at Valley Drive on the west end, and at SR-158 over Pine View Dam on the east end, from 5 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday.
During this work, all normal through-traffic to and from the Ogden Valley should consider using I-84 in Weber Canyon and SR-167, the Trappers Loop Highway, between Huntsville and Mountain Green, as an alternate route. Ogden Canyon residents will be allowed in and out of the closed area as needed.
