Some Seasonal Roads Are Set To Open

High elevation roads that lead to popular attractions and recreation areas are usually open by now, but are slow this year because of lingering snowpack.

The Visitor Center at Cedar Breaks is scheduled to open this weekend, after crews push snowdrifts off of the access road.

The Alpine Loop Scenic Byway will probably open in mid-June.

Hwy 150 in the Uintas and Hwy 39 (the Monte Cristo road) will probably not open until late June.

Below is information from the Utah Department of Transportation, detailing expected openings for seasonal roads.
