Eventually trucks replaced wagons as a more efficient and cost-effective mode of transportation and movement of supplies.
During low water years a sandbar was exposed on the Southeast end of the Island. Trucks could cross this natural land bridge.
In 1952, a causeway was
built on this sandbar and
used to transport animals
and supplies until it washed
out in 1983.
Erected by Utah State Parks.
