Westbound I80 to Salt Lake City Diverted Due to Semi Truck Crash

Utah Highway Patrol

The westbound lanes of Interstate 80 in Parley’s Canyon are being diverted to Interstate 215 in the Salt Lake Valley after a semi truck crashed early Wednesday morning.


Emergency crews have closed the westbound lanes of traffic at the mouth of Parley’s Canyon in Salt Lake City and are rerouting all traffic to I215. 


UDOT says the accident is estimated to be cleared by 12:30 Wednesday afternoon. Drivers traveling to the Salt Lake Valley from the Wasatch Back should plan accordingly and possibly take an alternate route.


Overnight snowstorms that continued into Wednesday morning have caused several accidents on local roads, UDOT and the Utah Highway Patrol urge drivers to be cautious in today’s driving conditions.
