S.R. 35 Wolf Creek Pass Closed to Vehicles for Winter Season
Utah Division of Parks and Recreation will Maintain Snowmobile Trail until Spring
OREM, Utah – The Utah Department of Transportation closed State Route 35 at Wolf Creek Pass today for the winter. Winter maintenance was discontinued last week and the road is now formally closed. U.S. 40 is the suggested route for travelers who have been using S.R. 35.
As part of the seasonal closure, UDOT has notified the Utah Division of Parks and Recreation (DPR) that they may begin snowmobile trail grooming operations. DPR will maintain a groomed snowmobile trail until spring of 2016. The trail grooming is part of an ongoing program, operated by DPR, designed to provide snowmobilers access to the Soapstone area and other popular backcountry riding areas.
For more information from DPR, please call (801) 538-RIDE or visit ohv.utah.gov. For more information about road and traffic conditions, download the UDOT Traffic app available for free in iTunes or Google Play.
