PARK CITY, Utah — The Utah Department of Transportation is seeking public opinion on an environmental study project in the Kimball Junction area.
From now through Jan. 27, 2023, the public can submit comments on the project. Also, UDOT will host meetings on Jan. 10-11 to review project detail and address questions.
UDOT is asking for input on the proposed alternatives, the need of the project, alternative screening criteria, and the identification of significant issues or potential new alternatives.
“This study is focused on long term transportation solutions for all modes of travel in the Kimball Junction area while balancing the environmental objectives,” said Grant Farnsworth, UDOT Region 2 project manager for the EIS.
UDOT says the study is being conducted to consider how areas along SR-224 at Kimball Junction can be approved upon.

“We look forward to continuing our partnership with the Summit County and Park City communities. To better understand the transportation needs throughout the area,” said Farnsworth.
This study builds on and uses information from the Kimball Junction and SR-224 Area Plan, said the release.
