The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) advises drivers to use alternate routes to access Provo Canyon for this weekend and into next week. Recent storms have eroded a section of the cliffside at the mouth of the canyon where 800 North in Orem connects to US-189. UDOT technical crews have evaluated the area and determined the bridge connection will remain closed to traffic as a safety precaution until the area of rock can be removed next week.

Motorists traveling into Provo Canyon from I-15 can use alternate local routes such as Orem Center Street or University Parkway to access University Avenue. From there, drivers will be able to travel up US-189. Plan additional travel time.
