ROAD CLOSURE: FEBRUARY 10th, 2021

There is a scheduled road closure of part of Emigration Canyon Road on Wednesday, February 10th. From 8:30 am until 4:30 pm.  Emigration Canyon Road will be closed in both directions between Quarter Mile Lane and the junction at Pinecrest. Newman Construction is setting new power poles for Rocky Mountain Power and will have large equipment on the road.  

During this closure, traffic from Pinecrest and Killyon’s Canyon will be detoured over the top of Little Mountain. Residents below Quarter Mile Lane heading in the direction of East Canyon or Park City will need to first go down canyon, and then proceed east on I-80.

At 4:30 PM, one-lane access through the construction zone will begin, with a flagger. Both lanes are planned to re-open by 7:00 pm that evening.

Please plan accordingly and allow additional travel time if necessary.  Click here for a plan of the site and the extent of the work.

Thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation during this essential work being done to upgrade our utilities.

Following weeks of continued stress on Utah’s hospital networks due to a rise in cases of COVID-19, Gov. Gary R. Herbert has declared a new State of Emergency to address hospital overcrowding.

Along with the State of Emergency, the governor and Utah Department of Health have issued concurrent executive and public health orders to curb the surge of cases in Utah.

The orders are effective Monday, Nov. 9, and will remain in effect until Nov. 23, 2020

1. The entire state is now under a mask mandate.

2. Casual social gatherings are only allowed with people you live with until November 23, 2020. 

3. All school extracurricular activities, sports, and clubs are on hold for the duration of the orders. 

4. College students, who either live on campus or attend at least one in-person class per week, are required to be tested for COVID-19 weekly.
