Park City’s Main Street braces for 3 years of traffic disruption April through July

PARK CITY, Utah — Park City has announced the commencement of a comprehensive three-phase thee year project aimed at revitalizing the Main Street water system. This initiative, beginning April 1, 2024, will focus on the replacement of the water main, fire lines, and water services to ensure the continued provision of safe and reliable drinking water.

This project marks the first system-wide upgrade since 1984, addressing the urgent need to replace aging infrastructure to prevent pipe breaks and other system failures. The city’s collaboration with the Historic Park City Alliance (HPCA) has been pivotal in scheduling the construction to minimize impact on local businesses and stakeholders during quieter business months.

The project timeline is as follows:

  • Phase I: From April 1 to July 1, 2024, the focus will be on the section from Heber Avenue to 5th Street.
  • Phase II: Scheduled for April 1 to July 1, 2025, will cover 5th Street to 3rd Street.
  • Phase III: Set for April 1 to July 1, 2026, will extend from 3rd Street to Swede Alley.

Residents and visitors can expect construction activities from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, with intermittent sidewalk closures ensuring at least one sidewalk remains open. The city and Silver Spur Construction, the contractor, will notify properties of any intermittent water shut-offs at least 48 hours in advance. Main Street, particularly the section from Heber Avenue to 5th Street during Phase I, will be closed to vehicles during construction hours but will reopen to at least one lane in the evenings and on weekends.

“The HPCA is working closely with the City to ensure access to businesses throughout the duration of the project,” said Ginger Wicks, Executive Director of the HPCA. “This is a great time to come and support locals businesses in the historic district with free parking in China Bridge through July 1st.”

Traffic modifications, including changes to the direction of 5th and 4th Streets, will facilitate vehicle circulation. Trolley service adjustments and provisions for deliveries will ensure continued accessibility and operation of businesses. Emergency vehicle access will be maintained throughout the project.
