SUMMIT COUNTY, Utah— The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) announced earlier today that crews will begin work to clear snow from Guardsman Pass the week of June 5.
At this time an opening date has not yet been determined for the seasonal road. UDOT has advised that there is a lot of work to do to get the road back into shape after the winter.
“In a typical year, many of the seasonal routes reopen around Memorial Day weekend,” said a statement from UDOT. “This winter, however, Utah experienced more snowfall than it has since the 1950s, and we had our highest snow-water level ever recorded. With this in mind, it may take longer to open these routes.”
