Portal Construction Scheduled to Start March 2020
SkyRidge residents are one-step closer to enjoying direct access to Deer Valley Resort through the soon to be constructed undercrossings or portals beneath U.S. Highway 40. Local Jordanelle and Mayflower traffic around exit 8 will have convenient east-west access through the portals.
The extensive development happening in the Jordanelle Recreation Area (JRA) is a major accomplishment that has been decades in the making. The complexity of the JRA project requires continual collaboration between Wasatch County, Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT), Military Installation Development Authority (MIDA) and area developers.
The connectivity provided by the new portals will reduce congestion and provide safe ingress/egress at the Mayflower interchange. The portals will be built with sufficient width to provide dedicated pedestrian and biking lanes.
Traffic congestion is among the top concerns for the Greater Park City Area residents and visitors. To address these concerns, the JRA is making it a priority to provide easy access and parking. Along with the portals and roundabouts, a “Transit System and Facility” will be developed to provide transportation services throughout the JRA east and west sides and connect to Park City and Heber City.
