Large crane on move between Park City construction sites


Construction crews working in the Main Street core plan to move a crane between two sites on consecutive days next week in an operation that will require traffic restrictions.

The crane will be shifted from the Rio Grande development site, situated at 820 Park Ave., to a project at 205 Main St.

The first step is scheduled on Tuesday. The Park City Building Department said Main Street will be closed to traffic between the 4th Street intersection and the project site at 205 Main St. The closure is anticipated to last from 6 a.m. until 3 p.m. There will be accommodations for deliveries. The operation will use flaggers and barricades.

The Building Department said a mobile crane will be used at 205 Main St., as crews ready the site for another crane that is needed for the project. That crane will be brought to the site from the Rio Grande project.

The crews on Wednesday intend to move the crane from the Rio Grande site to 205 Main St. The Building Department says a closure of 9th Street between Main Street and Park Avenue is planned that morning. The closure is expected to run from approximately 6 a.m. until 11 a.m.

During the closure of 9th Street, the crews will dismantle the crane at Rio Grande and load it onto a truck. The truck will then transport the crane to the 205 Main St. site via Deer Valley Drive and Swede Alley.
