Ogden Canyon Highway to Close for Paving Work on Monday, June 19

Local residents will be allowed in and out, while all others motorists must detour

  

Ogden – Utah Department of Transportation advises Ogden Valley and Ogden-area 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.

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. In order to complete this paving work in one day and keep delay and detouring to a minimum, Ogden Canyon (SR-39) 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 June 19.

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.

For more information, iPhone and Android smartphone users may download the free UDOT Traffic app from the iPhone App Store or Google Play, to stay abreast of traffic movements and construction work 24-hours a day.
