  1. Will We Have Access to Millcreek Canyon? 

The Federal Highway Administration, Salt Lake County, and other agencies propose widening Millcreek Canyon road from the winter gate parking area to Upper Big Water Trailhead, with construction slated for May 2025, potentially limiting access during the 2-year construction period due to safety concerns and cost considerations, according to the Salt Lake Tribune. Despite concerns raised by groups like Save Our Canyons about ecosystem impacts and alternatives to pavement, supporters argue that the project aims to address safety and accommodate growing canyon usage. While the proposal is open for public review until April 5, comments on project design are no longer accepted, but operational changes, such as shuttle options, are being considered.
