BIG COTTONWOOD CANYON, Utah — Landslides caused by storms on Sunday forced officials to close Big Cottonwood Canyon and part of Little Cottonwood Canyon overnight.
Debris, mud and fallen rocks covered the roadways, culverts, and shoulders.
The roads reopened Monday morning, but officials said the full cleanup could take weeks.
No injuries were reported. But, officials urged drivers to be cautious as crews work to clean up.
Heavy rain and flash flooding swept across Utah on Sunday, including the Wasatch front. Even more rain was expected Monday which could potentially cause more landslides.
