Gravel trucks present danger in Ogden Canyon

Friday , August 22, 2014 - 4:14 PM




What is it going to take for the highway department to restrict double and triple gravel hauling trucks through one of the most dangerous highways in Utah? Probably some politician to get wiped out by one of big rigs at the narrows.

The haulers can go over the expensive Trappers loop and just add the fuel cost to their load cost. The latest shut down for four hours was a string of concrete barriers knocked into the river—probably by a bike rider.
