Most Seasonal Roads Are Finally Open

Crews were able to get the Mirror Lake Highway cleared of snow and it was open for the Fourth of July weekend. Many campgrounds along the popular scenic route are still closed because of deep snow.

The highway normally opens just after Memorial Day, but heavy snow during late winter and spring caused it and many other Utah roads to be slow to open up.

Crews are now working to open the Gardsman Pass Road. It will probably be open sometime in lake July.

SR 153, Mount Holly Junction, is still closed by snow and officials are not predicting just when it will open up.

Utah's Department of Transportation provided the news release below.
