LOGAN — A cattle drive is expected to cause traffic delays in Logan Canyon from Thursday, Aug. 8, through Monday, Aug. 12.

Cattle allotment permittees will move more than 1,400 cattle from the lower early summer pastures to higher late summer pastures. The cattle will be moved up the highway in groups of 200-300 over a two-day period, starting at Temple Fork Road to the cattle guard below Twin Creeks, a distance of 2.5 miles.

Motorists can expect some delays. Drivers should slow down when driving through the steep curves of the canyon. Extra caution should be used in the evening and night to avoid encountering stray cattle.
