A brushfire burning in Parleys Canyon created gridlock in Old Town Park City today. 


Traffic this morning was backed up on Marsac Ave. when a semi truck got stuck trying to use Guardsman Pass to circumvent the fire, which has closed Interstate 80. The Parleys Fire has been reduced from 200 to 80 acres, but it’s still big enough to close the interstate that serves as the primary artery connecting Park City to the outside world. 





The activists from the group Save People, Save Wildlife are reporting mixed results from their current projects. Rick Brough has the details.


KPCW spoke to Erin Ferguson, who represents the group, dedicated to preventing collisions between motorists and unwary animals attempting to cross our local highways.


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.

Utah Department of Transportation officials are asking drivers to plan for delays next week on Tuesday, July 21, and Thursday, July 23, while it works on two new undercrossing roads. The work requires crews to narrow the westbound corridor of U.S. 40 to one lane.


UDOT crews are excavating between milepost seven and nine, near the Mayflower exit on Highway 40.

The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) recommends drivers plan ahead for possible heavy traffic along the Wasatch Front Friday and Monday due to holiday traffic for the Memorial Day weekend. In addition, drivers should plan ahead for several areas where construction restrictions remain in place along I-15 and U.S. 40 throughout the state.

We talked about the construction that is taking place in the Jeremy Ranch area, how it will affect traffic, and how long it will impact the community. We also discussed the future of the project, and how the county hopes the project will positively increase ease of traffic in the area.

The Utah Highway Patrol says that traffic was down to one lane until about 1 p.m. and some partial closures occurred after that to clean up the oil. Rick Brough has more.
