Beautification of route to Deer Valley Resort starts soon
May 5, 2015
Park City officials are preparing to start a second phase of work along the important entryway to Deer Valley Resort.
The beautification work is expected to start next week on the stretch of Deer Valley Drive between the Old Town roundabout and Snow Park Lodge.
The upgrades will include:
Matt Cassel, the Park City engineer, said the work is anticipated to last up to 12 weeks and cost City Hall $860,455. He said the upgrades are "finishing touches" left from the first phase, which took place in 2013.
City Hall planned to undertake the second phase in 2014, but officials delayed the work until this year after bids were higher than anticipated.
Cassel said the work will make the stretch of Deer Valley Drive friendlier for pedestrians. He said people who live in the neighborhood wanted the improvements.
