BIRDSEYE, Utah (ABC4 News) – Highway 89 in Birdseye was once again impacted by mud and debris due to flash flooding.
Thunderstorms made their way through Utah County Thursday evening producing heavy rain and strong winds.
Utah County officials said about a foot of mud and rock are covering the roadway in some areas.
Traffic was able to alternate through and get past the debris.
