I-70 Closed in Central Utah Because of Fire

I-70 has been closed in central Utah because smoke from a wildfire causing poor visibility in the area. The fire may approach the freeway and cause other safety hazards.

The Utah Department of Transportation reports that the freeway is closed from it's junction with I-15 west to Hwy 89. The closure will remain in effect until conditions improve. It is unknown when that will happen.

UDOT provided the detour info below:

I-70 between Millard and Sevier counties is closed due to poor visibility and potential fire danger. I-15 traffic needing to cross over to US-89 is currently being detoured to SR-50 Scipio to Salina. Westbound I-70 traffic from Sevier County is being diverted south on US-89 at Joseph.

KSL TV has this report about the closure, which includes a map.
