I-15 and U.S. Highway 6 experienced temporary closures early Monday, and traffic remained delayed after I-15 reopened along the Wasatch Front.

The Little Cottonwood Canyon road to two ski resorts also was briefly closed for avalanche control on Monday morning, which was a holiday and traditionally a busy ski day.
