SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - The Utah Department of Transportation is set to study ways to deal with increasing traffic on a narrow, two-lane highway in Ogden Canyon.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1r5FCHT ) the agency will spend $200,000 to establish a long-term plan for the road that leads to a popular reservoir and several ski resorts.

Utah Transportation Commission Chairman Jeffrey Holt says they want to look at what the options are for the next century for the canyon road that is used by cars as well as bikers and runners.

Holt says hundreds of requests come in yearly to use the road for special events such as marathons and bike races.

Kris Peterson of Utah Department of Transportation said the canyon road has become dangerous for bike riders.
