If you plan on driving along the Ogden Canyon Highway today, well, don't.

The Utah Department of Transportation closed down State Road 39 through the canyon at 9 a.m. Friday and planned to keep it off-limits to traffic through 9 a.m. Saturday.

The closure was ordered to allow repairs being done as part of an Ogden City Water Project.

During this closure motorists must use alternate routes, such as SR-167 and Interstate 84.
