Crews from the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) worked overnight to stop the slide and stabilize the road. It was reopened to traffic by noon on Saturday, September 20.
UDOT crews cut a ditch and a berm to keep the roadway open. There has been some movement of dirt and rocks into the ditch, but the berm has held, according to UDOT spokesman Kevin Kitchen.
The slide, on aptly-named Clay Hill, is located in an area that has seen many slides and slips through the years.
A number of vehicles were caught between Halls Crossing and the slide area. They were required to return to Halls Crossing and cross to Bullfrog on the Burr Ferry.
UDOT has electronic notification signs which give the latest road information. They are located at Shirt Tail Corner south of Blanding and at the intersection of Highways 275 and 276 at Moss Back.
