New Park-and-Ride To Ease Traffic In Big Cottonwood Canyon
Posted on 12/02/2014

Cottonwood Heights is building a new park-and-ride lot at the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon, to help ease traffic congestion and keep the air a little cleaner.


The project was funded by the State of Utah and will feature over 40 parking stalls.

Murray City is allowing Cottonwood Heights to build the lot on their property.

Some of the features of the new park-and-ride include an improved storm water drainage system that diverts water into the nearby creek, and ADA specifications that allow access for all.

The project also provides a new access ramp, connecting the Big Cottonwood Canyon Trail to the Park and Ride and the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon.

Miller Paving was awarded the contract for the project which was funded by the State of Utah. The project cost $1,123,512.56.
