This time of year, Park City is usually accepting permit applications and scheduling the summer calendar of events. In this unprecedented time of the public health order to stay at home, Park City’s summer events remain uncertain.

With the 2020 Sundance Film Festival only a week away, the city braces for impact.

One of the biggest changes to traffic operations during Sundance is the designation of Park Avenue as a one-way road. Except for transit buses, emergency vehicles, snowplows and Park Avenue residents with access passes, the street will be for outbound traffic only. Additionally, public parking on both sides of Park Avenue is removed, with the west side of the road available only to residents. Park City Special Events Manager Jenny Diersen says it’s a strategy to cut down on neighborhood traffic.
