Providence Canyon remains closed to motorized-wheeled vehicles

Logan District Ranger Jennifer Parker is reminding forest users that Providence Canyon Road, otherwise known as Forest Service Road Number 20090, is still closed to motorized-wheeled vehicles.The road is closed for public health and safety reasons, she says, and to prevent any further resource damage by vehicles. The road suffered major damage this spring after an unexpectedly high water runoff. Parker says using a motorized-wheeled vehicle is in violation of a road closure. Citations of illegal travel will be issued and can carry penalties from $175 to $5000 in fines and/or up to six months in jail.
