FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
US-89 in Logan Canyon Closed Due To Avalanche near Beaver Mountain
Ogden- The Utah Department of Transportation advises motorists that US-89 in Logan Canyon is closed just west of the Beaver Mountain turn-off (state Road 243) due to an avalanche that has blocked the highway.
It is not known as this time how long it will take to reopen the roadway. Cell service is spotty at best in Logan Canyon so all the details about this slide are not known at this time.
Cache Valley-bound, and/or Bear Lake or Wyoming area residents may use SR-30 to SR-16 to Wyoming 89 to I-84 at Evanston, Wyoming to travel to and from the area east of the avalanche. Another potential route is US-89 north to ID-36 at Ovid, Idaho, which will direct travelers back into the Cache Valley at Preston, Idaho.
