FARMINGTON — Farmington Canyon Road will be closed for repairs from sometime next week until mid- to late November.
Crews will work to preserve the wood retaining walls on the downhill side of the road. The next phase is to stabilize the landslide on the uphill side of the road, which is anticipated to begin the first part of October.
Emergency Relief for Federally Owned Roads funding has been received for the road work.
The road closure starts at the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache Forest boundary and runs east along Farmington Canyon Road to the Bountiful Peak campground.
