The City has addressed several calls regarding rocks and gravel on Canyon Road, SR-146, at the mouth of American Fork Canyon. The road, shoulder, right of way, and slope where the rocks fall from are owned and maintained by the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT). It is the responsibility of UDOT to clear the road, but as a city we try to remove debris from the roadway when we see it, or when residents notify us, if it can be done in a safe manner. UDOT has strict guidelines for fences or barriers along their roadways, and will not allow the City to construct a barrier. We will continue to work with UDOT maintenance crews to clear debris. If you see an issue, please call UDOT or the City Office.
