PINEVIEW -- A "pretty significant landslide" caused trouble for motorists Thursday evening, says Weber County Sheriff's Sgt. Ryon Hadley.
Around 9:30 p.m. drivers reported a landslide on State Road 39 just above the spillway at Pineview Reservoir.
A westbound vehicle ran into the landslide, sustaining front-end damage. A second vehicle drove over the rocks and punctured its tires.
There were no injuries. After changing tires, both vehicles were able to leave, Hadley said.
Weber County sheriff's deputies blocked traffic in both directions within 10 minutes.
The Utah Department of Transportation was assessing when to clear the road, because rocks were still coming down. The recent heavy rains contributed to the landslide, and it was still drizzling in the area late Thursday. No homes were threatened by the landslide.
According to a news release from UDOT spokesman Vic Saunders, crews from UDOT's Huntsville Maintenance Station were at the scene, monitoring the stability of the hillside before starting cleanup operations. Cleanup of the slide, and restoration of traffic on SR-39 was estimated at 2 a.m.
Motorists bound for Huntsville via SR-39 in Ogden Canyon will be detoured across Pineview Dam and around the reservoir via SR-158, the release states. Motorists may also access Huntsville via SR-167 from I-84 at Mountain Green.
