Expect delays through Logan Canyon

LOGAN – Traveling through Logan Canyon can be windy and dangerous and starting tomorrow morning, be prepared for cows to be on the highway as well.

“We wanted to let motorists know that there will be cows on the highway. I mean, not just a few here and there. There are going to be hundreds of cows on the highway moving very slowly up the canyon. People need to be prepared to slow down or stop,” warned Rangeland Management Specialist Chandler Mundy.

The two big days for cattle drives will be tomorrow (Thursday the 8<sup>th</sup>) and Monday the 12<sup>th</sup>. However, it’s likely there will be straggling cows near the road between those times.

“Sometimes the calves get separated from their moms. It’s probably likely that cows will be on the highway at night for another couple weeks after,” Mundy said.

During these two dates, a total of 1,478 cattle will move from Temple Fork to Twin Creeks.

Mundy wants motorists to be cautious and expect delays. He also says people are more than welcome to take pictures of the cattle drive.
