SANDY, Utah (AP) - The superintendent of a Salt Lake County school district is recommending the district halt school bus service on a route that has been deemed unsafe by a state engineer who examined the roadway in Big Cottonwood Canyon.

The Deseret News reports (https://bit.ly/2q8b0k7) state engineer Bruce Spiegel said in a letter to the Canyons School District that there is a “high probability of a serious unfavorable outcome” with the route.

Superintendent James Briscoe has suggested the school board eliminate the route this fall. The board agreed Tuesday to consider the matter at a future meeting to allow time to notify families that would be affected by the change.

Spiegel’s study of the bus route found several safety dangers for buses, including steep grades and skewed curves.
