OGDEN -- A stretch of State Route 39 in Ogden Canyon will be closed to through traffic from 9 a.m. to noon Tuesday to allow Utah Department of Transportation crews to remove concrete barriers from the Ogden River.
The closure will run between milepost 9 at the mouth of the canyon and Milepost 14 at Pineview Dam. Residents of Ogden Canyon will be able to access their homes during the closure via Huntsville from SR-167 and Interstate 84, or via the North Ogden Divide and SR-158 from Liberty. No traffic will be allowed from the Ogden side of the closure.
The concrete barriers were knocked into the Ogden River by over-length semi-trucks detoured into the canyon on Nov. 6, after a 26-vehicle crash closed I-84 in Weber Canyon.
