With daily backups during the morning and evening commutes, its no secret that the SR 248 has needed improvements for some time. The process is just beginning. One resident, however, said its not needed and wants to put a stop to it. KPCW's Melissa Allison tells us why city officials disagree.

Park City and the Utah Department of Transportation will need to launch an environmental assessment study before any improvements can be made to State Route 248. This means it could be two more years before there's traffic relief for Park City's back entrance. KPCW's Leslie Thatcher has more.

The Utah Department of Transportation is still looking at options for creating a noise barrier between Jeremy Ranch and Interstate 80. Rick Brough has more.

A UDOT road improvement project on Highway 224 started Monday and is expected to run through mid-November. The drainage project will have intermittent lane restrictions.

The firm on the project, Horrocks Engineering, says construction will impact 224 from Meadows Drive on the south end to Cove Canyon Drive (between the Blue Roof and Cutter Lane) on the north. Hours of construction will be 6am to 5pm.

Although there will be occasional lane restrictions, two lanes in each direction will stay open during peak hours.

A noise study information meeting will be held next Tuesday to discuss a possible noise wall being installed  near Jeremy Ranch. The meeting will be held June 13th at 6 pm at Jeremy Ranch Elementary School. UDOT environmental and noise analysis experts will provide information on the study recently completed on I-80 between Jeremy Ranch and Lamb's Canyon.

Among the transit projects being planned this year, Summit County and UDOT are contemplating a park-n-ride lot off Interstate 80, a short distance west of Kimball Junction. Rick Brough has details.

The UDOT bridge repair project isn't the only hurdle commuters face between Park City and Heber City this summer.  A pavement repair just north of Heber is also slowing down traffic.  KPCW's Renai Bodley has more:

Prepare for slow traffic Friday afternoon, May 27, on eastbound U.S. 40 in Summit County.  The Utah Department of Transportation warns travelers to expect delays between Exit 4, Kearns Boulevard, and Jordanelle Reservoir from 2pm to 6pm.   UDOT says those delays could be between 45 minutes and one hour long.    Eastbound traffic is currently reduced to one lane.  And starting Friday, June 3,  U.S. 40 is scheduled to be down to one lane in each direction, with all traffic shifted to the eastbound lanes.
