Late in the evening on August 8th, a severe thunderstorm impacted Little Cottonwood Canyon, resulting in several large mudflows, damage to SR 210, and a prolonged road closure. The most heavily impacted portion of the canyon is below Snowbird. As of Friday afternoon, opportunities for uphill and downhill vehicle travel in the canyon will be limited, in order to provide crews opportunities to remove debris and repair damaged infrastructure. SR-210 will be open for uphill traffic from 5-530 PM, and it will be open for downhill traffic from 530-6 PM. For real-time updates to the SR 210 road status, follow @altacentral or @canyonalerts on Twitter.

Stage one of the 2019 Tour of Utah professional cycling race will begin and end at Snowbird Ski Resort on Monday, August 12th. The “time trial” prologue stage will depart from Snowbird Entry 2, go up SR 210 to the top of the bypass road, descend the bypass road, and return to Entry 2. This will result in a closure of this portion of SR 210 and of the Bypass Road, and it will entail residential access restrictions in those areas between roughly 11 AM and 3 PM on Monday, August 12th. Please see the Tour of Utah website for more information.
