Road redo considered

City Hall is seeking opinions about the potential to make improvements to Hillside Avenue, a tiny but strategically placed Old Town street.

Hillside Avenue links the upper part of Main Street with Marsac Avenue. It typically does not draw lots of traffic, but it is barely wide enough for two cars driving in opposite directions to pass each other. City Hall indicates Hillside Avenue is 14 feet wide at its southern end.

According to a City Hall release, officials plan to draft a firm to study retaining walls and waterworks upgrades and to research whether curbs, gutters and sewers could fit on Hillside Avenue.

Matt Cassel, the Park City engineer, said in the release construction is scheduled for 2009.

An open house is scheduled on Thursday, Sept. 25 from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. in Room 205 of the Park City Library and Education Center, 1255 Park Ave.

Mayor Dana Williams and the Park City Council are scheduled to consider a contract for the design work on Oct. 2, according to the release.

City Hall in this decade has been aggressively upgrading Old Town streets and infrastructure, and the Hillside Avenue work would continue those efforts.

For more information, call Cassel at 615-5075.
