The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) has completed Phase I of a Transportation Study in Ogden Canyon. The purpose of Phase I was to gather physical information and opinions concerning transportation through Ogden Canyon so a plan can be formed for future canyon uses and needs.
In Phase II, the study team will meet more extensively with people and groups who care about Ogden Canyon. The study team will use information collected in Phase I to develop concepts that solve and mitigate controversy and that are feasible. Stakeholder groups made up of people who live, work, travel, and recreate in Ogden Canyon will be formed to evaluate these concepts and give input. Representatives of local government and other agencies will also participate in evaluating the concepts and giving feedback.
Please visit our website to read about our findings from Phase I. We will keep you updated in the coming months as work progresses in Phase II.
The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) is conducting a Transportation Study in Ogden Canyon. The Transportation Commission asked UDOT to conduct the study and look at all modes of transportation in the canyon. The purpose of the study is to gather and share information in an interactive and transparent process to develop an understanding of the safety and mobility needs in the canyon.
The study analysis includes existing and future safety concerns, traffic volumes, resident needs, economic needs, multi-modal uses (biking, truck traffic, pedestrian, transit, etc.), recreational uses, and environmental and geotechnical/geologic concerns.

This Fall’s Full Moon Wildlife Wander will be led by DWR specialist Clint Brunson with a focus on migration and will feature live birds from HawkWatch International. Migration is nearly universal within the animal kingdom; mobility is a defining animal trait in animals across the globe. Come take a gentle stroll under the full moon in the world's 21st International Dark Sky Park and learn more! At last Spring’s Wildlife Wander, a moose appeared as if on cue. What will we see and hear September 26?

North Fork Park (Mustang Flats Bowery, enter Middle Gate)
Commissioner Matt Bell and student Zach Thomas will dedicate the park atwith star party to follow. In attendance will be the Weber State University sky-quality monitoring teams. The Ogden Astronomical Society will provide high power telescopes and, weather permitting, participants will see the Milky Way and be able to understand the many reasons the International Dark Sky Association accredited North Fork Park as the world's 21st International Dark Sky Park - ahead of Capitol Reef (number 22) and Canyonlands (number 23) National Parks. Accreditations of Grand Canyon and Glacier National Parks are expected soon. North Fork Park is in undeniably exceptional company.
Please bring your friends and children to recognize this signal achievement of North Fork Park and enjoy the stars and night sky.
