UDOT: Gusty winds will make travel a challenge

First Published Jan 22 2014 01:38 pm • Last Updated Jan 22 2014 02:27 pm

Windy weather expected to blow through the region prompted the Utah Department of Transportation to issue travelers’ advisories for Thursday through Friday afternoon.

Strong crosswinds, some gusting past 50 mph, will affect north-to-south roads along the east benches and at the mouths of canyons in Davis and Weber counties from 4 a.m. Thursday through 5 p.m. Friday.

On Interstate 15, those same stiff winds will buffet drivers between Layton and Woods Cross from 5 a.m. through 1 p.m. Thursday, UDOT warned.

Highway 89 between Weber Canyon and North Salt Lake will experience easterly winds of 45 mph, while Highway 6 from Price to Green River and Highway 40 running east of Vernal will see crosswinds of 45 mph and higher, 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday.
