OGDEN — The Ogden Canyon Highway will be closed to all traffic from 9 a.m. today until 9 a.m. Saturday.

Utah Department of Transportation spokesman Vic Saunders said the closure is needed to facilitate emergency repairs being conducted as part of the Ogden city waterline replacement project, now under way in the canyon.

The road must be completely closed where the work is taking place, and no through traffic will be allowed until it is complete.

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