Park City Council approved moving ahead with the 500-stall park and ride at Quinn’s Junction known as the frontage road lot. The project design is about half finished and the council hopes to have it shovel ready by the end of September.

About a year ago, Park City Council asked staff to look at three lots in the Quinn’s Junction area as possible park and ride locations. The original task was to find the cheapest, easiest, quickest way to create a Bus Transit Route and lighten traffic on SR 248.

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.

Park City leaders say their residents want the city to take bold action to address traffic congestion. That directive comes from the city’s Vision 2020 project, where more than 1,000 community members participated in surveys and focus groups to discuss the city’s future. So, the city council is revisiting a park-and-ride lot planned for the Quinn’s Junction area, near the interchange of U.S. 40 and S.R. 248. The lot would have 400 to 500 spaces intended to catch commuters coming in from Wasatch County and eastern Summit County.
