Roadwork meeting is set
City Hall officials and the road builder tapped to work on two Old Town streets this year have scheduled an open house to explain the projects.
The open house is slated for May 27 from 4-7 p.m. in Room 205 at the Park City Library and Education Center. Matt Cassel, the Park City engineer, says the presenters will discuss the construction schedule and parking plans. They will also take questions. The open house is designed for people who live on Woodside Avenue and Norfolk Avenue.
Cassel says Phyllis Robinson, who handles public relations for City Hall, will also address the open house.
The crews will rebuild Woodside Avenue between 13th Street and 15th Street and Norfolk Avenue between 8th Street and 13th Street. The work continues City Hall’s long-running efforts to fix up aging streets in Old Town.
The work includes replacing the surface, new water and sewer lines, conduit to one day bury utility wires and sidewalks on parts of both streets. Cassel says the work is scheduled to be finished by Oct. 15.
In anticipation of the work, parking spots have been fenced off to allow the crews to store equipment and materials. Some of the spots are across Park Avenue from the Library and Education Center and the others are just north of the field outside the library.
"It doesn’t help, but we’ll figure it out," Cassel says about losing the parking spots, including the 20 to 25 spaces across from the library.
The Park City Council recently authorized an almost $4 million contract with a Kamas firm for the roadwork.
The work marks the continuing efforts by City Hall to upgrade Old Town’s aging infrastructure, and other roads have undergone similar work. Upper Park Avenue and Prospect Avenue are among the streets that have been redone.
