Little Kate, Monitor reopen after gas leak outside Park City MARC

Construction crews doing road work broke a gas line in front of PC MARC June 24.
The Park City Municipal Athletic & Recreation Center is located at Monitor Drive and Little Kate Road in Park Meadows.

Authorities have lifted the evacuation order around a gas leak outside Park City's rec center.

Last updated at 7:24 p.m. June 24, 2024 • The intersection of Little Kate Road and Monitor Drive has reopened after a gas leak the afternoon of June 24.

The leak began when construction crews broke a gas line doing road work.

People were initially evacuated within 500 feet of the gas leak, but the order was lifted shortly after 5:30 p.m., according to Park City Fire Marshal Mike Owens.

Summit County dispatch said MARC patrons were asked to shelter in place. No injuries were reported.

According to Owens, there is little risk to the public because natural gas is lighter than air, so it rises and dissipates quickly. Gas was shut off shortly after 5 p.m.

Park City Transit's 2 Green and 3 Blue buses were detoured through Lucky John Drive and skipped the MARC while the intersection was closed for repairs.
