2 avalanches close down Utah roads

March 9, 2019

PROVO, Utah (AP) — Authorities in Utah say two avalanches have led to road closures in Provo Canyon and Alta.

Authorities closed westbound lanes in one part of Highway 189 and eastbound lanes in another part of the road.

In Alta, an avalanche resulted in the closure of Little Cottonwood Canyon.

There are no reports of injuries.

The Utah Highway Control said it had investigated 146 crashes and slide-offs Friday because of winter conditions.
