City Creek Canyon will be closed to public access on Saturday, Oct. 3, for cleaning.
The Salt Lake City Public Utilities Department will haul sludge from the treatment plant facility three miles up the canyon."Because large trucks and heavy equipment will be driving in and out of the narrow canyon, closing the canyon is necessary to protect public safety," Department Director LeRoy W. Hooton Jr. said. "We appreciate the cooperation of canyon users during this one-day closure."
Hooton said the canyon will reopen Sunday, Oct. 4.
