Summer Travel Information

With the summer driving season approaching, the Utah Department of Transportation has developed this webpage with resources to help travelers.

Road condition information can be found at That service provides timely info about traffic flow and problems throughout the state, with particular detail about the Salt Lake-Ogden-Provo areas (because that’s where most traffic problems occur).

A prominent link will pull up info on road closures and other problems statewide.

The State Road Construction Report can also be very helpful as you plan routes to avoid delays.

You can also download a pdf file containing a Utah road map.

People always wonder if seasonal roads at high elevations will be open by the big Memorial Day weekend. At this writing, Wolf Creek Pass is open but the Mirror Lake Highway (150) and Monte Cristo are not. Northern Utah’s high country received heavy late season snow and so the Mirror Lake Highway may not open before the holiday.
