Elk Herd Shuts Down I-80

Prior to installation of the Wildlife bridge, Lambs Canyon was an absolute hot spot for Elk, Deer, Moose and even Bears along (and on) I-80. In early 2017, a large herd of Elk found themselves bedded in the middle of this heavily trafficked corridor. In an unprecedented move, the Department of Wildlife Rescources, along with UDOT and law enforcement, shut down 1-80 for 30 minutes while they all attempted to move the herd to safety.

Watch it all unfold here with Good4Utah’s exciting coverage.
