Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

Construction is underway on a pedestrian tunnel at Kearns Blvd / SR-248 near the Park City High School and Cooke Drive. This tunnel will replace the current pedestrian crossing and is part of the overall plan for Kearns Blvd / SR-248 corridor. The tunnel will help alleviate traffic congestion, improve circulation, provide safe access for all users and enhance access to trails and transit.

Park City is proud to showcase this project as a 100% net zero design. All of the lighting and electric snowmelt system for the tunnel will be 100% offset (in an average year) by the solar panels installed on the railings and incorporated into the aesthetic design of the project.

We are excited to share that students from Park City High School will be creating artwork for the tunnel murals.

What to Expect:

  • Travel through the corridor may be delayed during certain construction milestones. Drivers should plan ahead and follow traffic control devices.
  • Expect lane restrictions and changing travel patterns throughout the project. One lane of travel in each direction will be maintained and the center turn lane will be removed.
  • Transit stops near Park City High School may be temporarily relocated.
  • Pedestrian access may be temporarily rerouted.

A current project update is available here.
