Time is nearing for Park City’s annual asphalt work
The Park City Public Works Department recently received the go-ahead to conduct its annual maintenance work on city streets, identifying a series of road sections where crews will be operating this year.
The Park City Council recently authorized just more than $600,000 worth of contracts with four firms to perform the maintenance work. The most expensive of the contracts, accounting for nearly two-thirds of the total, will pay for asphalt overlays.
There are expected to be more than 5,500 tons of asphalt put down in the overlays, according to a report submitted to Mayor Dana Williams and the Park City Council prior to the contracts being authorized.
The street sections where overlays are scheduled include:
The street sections where slurry seal — 66,224 square yards between them — is scheduled to be put down include:
A series of related utility adjustments is planned as well.
The work is scheduled to start just after the 4th of July and last until early August. The Public Works Department anticipates there being minimal traffic delays when the overlays are put down. Temporary lane closures are anticipated when work on the slurry seals is occurring, though.
Start a dialogue, stay on topic and be civil.

The Park City Council primary election is slated for Aug. 13, but the ballots in the vote-by-mail contest were scheduled to be sent on Tuesday. The Summit County Clerk’s Office anticipates the ballots will arrive in mailboxes and post-office boxes on Friday or Saturday.
