Price Canyon port of entry closing for westbound traffic

The port of entry in Price Canyon will be closed in the westbound direction to focus efforts on the east bound truck traffic. According to Ron Butler of the Utah Department of Transportation, the west bound traffic is checked in Colorado and in Monticello and closing the check will eliminate the left hand turn west bound trucks have to make across traffic, making the port much safer. Local company's trucks will be checked at the company level, a system which Butler said will require a little policing on the company's part but is an effective way to keep track of local trucks. The Utah Department of Transportation states that the purpose of the ports of entry is to preserve the state's highway infrastructure, protect the traveling public and to promote the advancement of the motor carrier industry.
