Park City police officers are responding to the Prospector area because motorists are using the neighborhood as an unofficial detour around construction on Kearns Boulevard.
Captain Phil Kirk reported that, starting about a week ago, their officers started spending a lot of time on Sidewinder Drive. He said they had received several complaints from residents about traffic cutting through the neighborhood.
He said officers have given out about 30 citations or warnings in that time.
Capt. Kirk said citizens have called in to thank them for the uptick in enforcement of the residents-only street. He said they will continue the oversight until the construction is done on Kearns.
