SALT LAKE CITY — Roads were slick in many areas along the Wasatch Front on Monday morning as a Sunday snowstorm was winding down.

Several traffic incidents were reported, including a multi-vehicle crash involving a semitruck on northbound I-15 near 2100 North in Lehi, according to the KSL Traffic Center.

Road restrictions on eastbound I-80 through Parleys Canyon have now been lifted, according to the Utah Department of Transportation. Drivers traveling on state Route 210 in Little Cottonwood Canyon must be equipped with snow tires, but tire chains and four-wheel drive were not required, as of 11 a.m., town officials said.

Semitrucks are not being permitted on state Route 14 from milepost 1 to milepost 40, between Cedar City and the state Route 14 junction with U.S. Highway 89, according to UDOT.

Snow tapered off after 7 a.m., KSL Meteorologist Grant Weyman said. Check the forecast here.
