Following mud slides on Thursday evening, Highway 6 remains closed in both directions as of Friday morning.

Reportedly, a debris flow left over three feet of mud on the road near Thistle Junction at mile post 198, just west of Tie Fork Rest Area. Another slide on U.S. 89 near Birdseye, which was also causing traffic delays, has been cleared.

The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) has projected a clean up time of 12 p.m. on Friday afternoon. UDOT is recommending using US-191 and US-40 as alternate routes.
