Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Winter Storm Brings Hazardous Conditions to Northern Utah Canyon Roads” – below is their description.

Utah transportation officials warned drivers of dangerous mountain road conditions in northern Utah on Friday, February 5, due to persistent snowfall.

Footage released by the Utah Department of Transportation Cottonwood Canyons shows vehicles driving on slick roads in reduced visibility.

“Roads are holding wet in lower canyons, with slush and snow mid to upper canyons,” the department tweeted. “Drive with caution, the #TractionLaw is in effect.”

The National Weather Service expected the storm to impact northern Utah into Saturday morning by creating hazardous travel along high elevation routes.

    Utah is a state in the western United States.

    The territory of modern Utah has been inhabited by various indigenous groups for thousands of years, including the ancient Puebloans, the Navajo, and the Ute. The Spanish were the first Europeans to arrive in the mid-16th century, though the region’s difficult geography and climate made it a peripheral part of New Spain and later Mexico.

    Disputes between the dominant Mormon community and the federal government delayed Utah’s admission as a state; only after the outlawing of polygamy was it admitted as the 45th, in 1896.

    A little more than half of all Utahns are Mormons, the vast majority of whom are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), which has its world headquarters in Salt Lake City. Utah is the only state where most of the population belongs to a single church. The LDS Church greatly influences Utahn culture, politics, and daily life, though since the 1990s the state has become more religiously diverse as well as secular.

    The state has a highly diversified economy, with major sectors including transportation, education, information technology and research, government services, and mining and a major tourist destination for outdoor recreation.

    A 2012 Gallup national survey found Utah overall to be the “best state to live in the future” based on 13 forward-looking measurements including various economic, lifestyle, and health-related outlook metrics.
