Utah's High Roads Will Be Open For Memorial Day Weekend

Our seasonal high mountain roads are opening earlier than normal - many are open now and most others will be open for Memorial Day Weekend. Most of our forest campgrounds will also be open.

Utah Hwy 14 will be open on a limited basis for the holiday weekend. It is a major highway and is usually open year-round, but it has been closed for several months while crews repair damage caused by a massive landslide.

A dirt road has been built across the slide area and it will be open from 3 p.m. on Thursday, May 24, until 7 a.m. on Tuesday, May 29. After that the dirt road will be closed during the day on weekdays, so crews can continue working to make permanent repairs. During the construction period the dirt section will be open 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. on Mondays through Thursdays. It will be open to motorists on weekends beginning on Fridays at 5 p.m.

Hwy 14 provides access to Duck Creek Village and other popular areas on Cedar Mountain.

Visitor facilities at Cedar BreaksNational Monument will be open beginning Memorial Day weekend.

In northern Utah, Hwy 150, the Mirror Lake Highway, is already open. Campgrounds along the highway are opening quickly now and most will be available for the holiday.

SR 35 is open over Wolf Creek Pass.

SR 39 is open over Monte Cristo.

SR 92, the Alpine Loop, is expected to open for Memorial Day Weekend.

SR 224 and SR 190 are open over Guardsman Pass.

Always check locally for current conditions when venturing into the high country.
