The La Sal Loop road will be fully closed until March 5, 2018 from Mason Draw Campground to Castleton-Gateway Road for construction projects, according to U.S. Forest Service (USFS) Recreation Specialist Zachary Lowe.

According to Lowe, construction will begin again in May 2018 and all work must be completed by June 14, 2018.

Lowe added that there will be no closures after that March 5 date, however there will be up to 30-minute delays on that section of road.

“We are uncertain of what will happen between March 5 to May when they begin construction again, but [the federal government] said it will remain open without delays,” Lowe said.

For updates on the closures or construction work, visit the Manti-La Sal National Forest Facebook page, or contact the USFS Moab Ranger District at 435-259-7155.
