Carmageddon

KPCW Radio

Traffic congestion is among the top complaints for Park City residents and commuters; and reducing it is one of the top priorities for the city’s 10-year transportation plan. One way to do that is through the transit system—providing people leave the car at home and ride the bus.

Old Town resident Peter Marth says he hopes Park City someday becomes car-free. He says people won’t head to the transit hubs until traffic causes them to miss five or six powder days in a row.

Carmageddon Returns

Too many cars – all trying to get somewhere at the same time – created another Carmaggedon Thursday night with reports of up to an hour to drive from Silver Lake to Kearns Blvd. KPCW’s Leslie Thatcher has more.

Skiers exiting from Deer Valley and Park City Mountain Resorts as well as folks making their way to the store or dinner reservations got stuck in stand-still traffic Thursday and took some people an hour to drive less than 4 miles.

It was a flashback to Carmageddon last Friday when a rush-hour storm stalled local traffic. KPCW's Melissa Allison has more.
