BRIGHAM CITY, Utah — Sardine Canyon commuters beware. Friday morning you can expect delays between 8 to 8:30 a.m. due to thousands of sheep being herded by area ranchers from Mantua to Brigham City.
The sheep will be in the southbound lanes of US-89/91. The tradition comes every fall to move sheep from their summer range to their winter range.
Brigham City Assistant Chief of Police Chris Howard said once the sheep get to Brigham City they will exit on to the 200 South Exit to 600 East. From there, the herd will travel down 600 East to 600 North, then down 600 North and across Main Street to Water Lane.
As in the past, Utah Highway Patrol troopers will be in the canyon warning motorist to slow down and watch for herders and their sheep.
