VERNAL, Utah (AP) -- Snowfall throughout the Ashley National Forest has resulted in several road closures.
Roads in the Flaming Gorge and Vernal Ranger Districts in eastern Utah have closed to wheeled vehicle traffic, but they are open to over-the-snow travel. The only exception is the Red Cloud Loop road between Iron Springs and Kaler Hollow, which is closed to all motorized travel.
The Deep Creek area is also closed to wheeled traffic due to snow conditions.
All other roads in the Flaming Gorge Ranger District remain open but forest officials say they are generally snow packed with some areas of drifting snow.
The bridge over Brush Creek has also been removed and will be replaced in the spring with a wider bridge to ease travel along Red Cloud Loop.
