Time is nearing for Park City’s annual asphalt work

by Jay Hamburger OF THE RECORD STAFF

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:

  • American Saddler Drive close to the Lucky John Drive intersection
  • Deer Valley Drive close to the Old Town roundabout
  • Queen Esther Drive close to Telemark Drive
  • Snow Creek Drive close to S.R. 224
  • Crescent Road close to Three Kings Drive
  • Iron Horse Drive between Bonanza Drive and S.R. 224
  • 8th Street between Park Avenue and Empire Avenue
  • Estates Drive between American Saddler Drive and Estates Circle
  • Woodside Avenue between 8th Street and 10th Street
  • Woodside Avenue between Park Avenue and an address on the 500 block of Woodside Avenue
  • Monitor Drive close to the Lucky John Drive intersection
  • Silver Cloud Drive close to the Meadows Drive intersection
  • Sullivan Road between Miners Hospital and Park Avenue
  • The senior citizens center on Woodside Avenue

    The street sections where slurry seal — 66,224 square yards between them — is scheduled to be put down include:

  • Oak Wood Court between Sun Ridge Drive to the cul-de-sac
  • Meadows Drive between Evening Star Drive and Sunny Slopes Drive
  • American Saddler Drive between Meadows Drive and Lucky John Drive
  • Deer Valley Drive between Solamere Drive and Snow Park Lodge
  • Euston Drive
  • Lucky John Drive between Little Kate Road and American Saddler Drive
  • Lowell Avenue between Manor Way and Empire Avenue
  • the parking lot at the Park City Ice Arena
  • Silver Cloud Court between Silver Cloud Drive and the end of the cul-de-sac

    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.
