The Utah Department of Transportation advises motorists that the segment of State Route 923, from Pine Hollow to Aspen Grove (milepost 15 to 22), is closed for the winter. The Alpine Loop is a seasonal highway and the cost to keep the road open during the winter months is not practical due to heavy snowfalls in the area. This section of road will remain closed until Spring 2008.
