SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Heavy snowfall across much of Utah created hazardous driving conditions that slowed the Wednesday morning commute as school districts canceled classes and others delayed openings.
Multiple crashes are being reported by UDOT, including on Interstate 15. A crash on the northbound side in Riverdale closed the right lane until 10:30 a.m.
School districts canceling classes due to snow included Jordan, Canyons, Park City and Tooele County. Salt Lake City schools are delaying openings.
Ogden School District and Weber School District schools were open and buses were running Wednesday morning. All Utah School for the Deaf and the Blind Campuses were closed due to the heavy snow and hazardous driving conditions.
"School is in session and buses are running," Weber School District posted on Facebook. "If families feel like they would rather keep their children home because of inclement weather, we support your decision and students will be allowed to make up work."
The University of Utah in Salt Lake City closed its campus Wednesday but said its health care system and hospitals remained open.
The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for Salt Lake City and other areas through 6 p.m. and said additional snow accumulations of up to 6 inches was expected on valley floors.
