August 19, 2020: Progress Update
For the next several weeks, crews will continue work on a number of items that include:
- Cleaning storm drain catch basins and culverts
- Completing detention pond outlet structures
- Installing erosion control measures
- Installing remaining wildlife fencing
- Repairing ADA pedestrian ramps (near the Pinebrook roundabout)
- Continuing installation of landscaping irrigation and plant replacement
- Continuing work on construction site cleanup and demobilizing the project construction yard
School starts tomorrow for Park City students! The project has upgraded several sidewalks and installed new pedestrian-activated crossings to improve safety for pedestrians, cyclists and drivers. Last year, Summit County completed the new pedestrian pathway at Bluebird Lane that connects to Jeremy Ranch Elementary School (see the map below).

The new Jeremy Ranch Park and Ride Lot is now open! Summit County will install a bus shelter in the next few weeks. Utah Transit Authority’s SLC-PC Connect (UTA 902) and Park City Transit’s 7 Pink bus service will resume service to Jeremy Ranch on Monday, Aug. 24. A new e-bike station is being installed in the Jeremy Ranch Park and Ride Lot and is also anticipated to open soon.
All drivers should use caution and follow the posted speed limit when traveling through the project area.
There will be ongoing construction activities in travel lanes at various locations while crews complete the project. Drivers can expect intermittent lane impacts and traffic shifts. Please use caution in the work area and reduce your speed.
Drivers should use caution, follow signage and obey traffic rules. Check out these educational videos for a quick refresher on how to safely navigate roundabouts.
These videos were originally developed by the Region of Durham and depict a generic two-lane roundabout similar to the final Jeremy Ranch Roundabouts configuration.
