PAYSON CANYON, Utah, May 22, 2023 (Gephardt Daily) — The Nebo Loop Scenic Byway was damaged Monday after a section of the road washed away about nine miles up Payson Canyon.

The Utah County Sheriff’s Office said fast-running water washed away a section of Nebo Loop Road near the turnoff to Pete Winward Reservoir.

Payson Canyon roads in the area typically are open by Memorial Day, according to the sheriff’s office.

Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest officials say the road damage will delay that opening by about two weeks.

Gephardt Daily will update this story as more information becomes available.
