What are you doing with the money from the 2016 taxes? Wasn’t that enough?

County and cit[ies] staff began implementing projects as soon as the funds became available. The Electric Xpress, the Kimball Junction Circulator, and the Kamas Commuter are all funded through the previously imposed taxes, as are some of the electric bikes and the pedestrian tunnel near Park City High School. Also with this revenue, work has begun on the Jeremy Ranch interchange and the Ecker Park and Ride. The County is in the process of purchasing and improving the Kamas Park and Ride parcel. Both Kamas and Francis also received funding for road overlay projects. 

In 2019 with these revenues, the County will construct the Bitner to Silver Creek Road extension, improve trails, expand transit, and begin the environmental phase of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) on SR-224. Park City will begin its Bonanza Park Transit Center project along with SR-248 Corridor safety improvements. Coalville City will continue with the design process for reconstruction of Coalville Main Street.
