SR-248 Transmission Water Line Improvement

Post Date:03/31/2020

Work begins on 3Kings Water Treatment Plant and SR-248 Transmission Water Line Improvement

As part of Park City’s Master Water Treatment Plan, we will begin work on the 3Kings Water Treatment Plant (3KWTP) and SR-248 Transmission Water Line Improvement Project on Tuesday, March 31, 2020. This project is an integral part of the overall master plan for the treatment of water draining from the Judge and Spiro Tunnels. It will include installation of new water pipelines to transport water from the Spiro Tunnel to the new 3KWTP, 3KWTP to the Boothill Tank, and from the Boothill Tank to Wyatt Earp Drive. The project also includes the extension of a raw water line from Wyatt Earp Way to 3KWTP, which will facilitate treatment of additional mine tunnel water by adding water to McLeod Creek imported from Rockport Reservoir.

Stage One of project will be completed in the following three phases, with work scheduled to begin on March 31, 2020. Crews will be working along the south side of SR-248 between 7:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m., Monday-Friday.

  • Phase I (March 31-June, 2020) Wyatt Earp Way to Comstock Drive
  • Phase II (June-August, 2020) Comstock Drive to Bonanza Drive
  • Phase III (August-October 31, 2020) Bonanza Drive to Snow Creek Drive

Stage Two of the project - Boothill Tank to the 3KWTP - will resume in spring 2021 with expected completion by October 15, 2021.

Throughout the project, traffic control along the south side of SR-248 may involve shifting lanes around work sites. Minimal impacts are expected to sidewalks and bike lanes. Brief water outages may occur while existing lines are taken out of service and connected to the new transmission lines. Customers will be notified 48 hours in advance of any anticipated water outages.

As an Essential Infrastructure project, crews working on the project will follow strict guidelines to remain in compliance with the Summit County Public Health Order (Section 2) issued on March 23, 2020. This will include social distancing and sanitizing supplies and equipment.

Project updates will be posted to the Water Projects page on the City’s website.
