CEDAR CITY — State transportation officials say a state highway in Southern Utah closed by a massive landslide in October is scheduled to reopen with limited access June 1 and with full access by July 4.
Crews have worked in recent weeks to remove dirt and boulders from State Road 14, about eight miles east of Cedar City.
Some 1.5 million cubic yards of dirt, rock and debris slid down a steep ravine Oct. 8, destroying nearly a quarter-mile of the highway.
Utah Department of Transportation officials say a relocation of the highway will require crews to move about 400,000 cubic yards of material.
The highway is used by residents and tourists to get to grazing land for cattle and Bryce Canyon National Park.
