SR 210 Road Closures, August 9th 1:00 PM Update

August 9, 2019

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.
