CLOSING WILDIFE FENCING GAPS

CLOSING WILDLIFE FENCING GAPS

Now that the wildlife overpass has been completed at Summit Park over I-80 in Park City, it’s time to close the remaining gaps. We need to replace the right of way fencing along this busy stretch of I 80 between Jeremy Ranch and Kimball Junction…and then Kimball Junction to Silver Creek Junction..

SR 224 WILDLIFE MITIGATION MEASURES

SR 224 WILDLIFE MITIGATION MEASURES

SR 224 is the fifth most dangerous hotspot for wildlife vehicle collisions in Utah. Large animals are regularly killed on this stretch of Road in Park City, causing death, injury, and thousands of dollars in property damage. Mitigation measures such as crossings, wildlife fencing and VMS signs are investments that are needed to reduce wildlife- vehicle collisions.
