October 3, 2022 – Construction officially started for High Valley Transit’s first permanent administration and maintenance facility in Park City, Utah. The organization has been utilizing a temporary structure since it started serving the Summit County community in 2021.
Monday, a groundbreaking ceremony took place at the construction site of what will be an eight-acre transit maintenance and operations campus. Upon completion, the new facility will allow High Valley Transit to enhance and expand its already successful regional service across the Wasatch Back.
“High Valley Transit is proud to be partnering with Big-D on this exciting project. They have already proven their commitment to High Valley as we have navigated the requirements of FTA contracting. We look forward to the completion of a successful project that will serve the entire Wasatch Back region for decades to come,” said Kim Carson High Valley Transit, Board Chair.
Big-D Construction in Salt Lake City was awarded the project in early 2022 along with GSBS Architects.
“Big-D Construction is both excited and proud to work with High Valley Transit, GSBS, and other partners on a project that will serve the residents of Summit County. Having an office in Park City, we understand the needs of enhanced transportation options to the residents. With 55 years of experience working on diverse projects in the beehive state, including transportation facilities across the Wasatch Front, we are confident in delivering this project and meeting the needs and expectations of our owners and partners,” said Executive Chairman Rob Moore, for Big-D Companies.
Approximately 61,277 square-feet, the project will include administrative and operations offices; a four-bay maintenance shop featuring storage areas, vehicle lifts, and an automatic wash bay; enclosed bus parking for 24 full-size transit buses, and covered parking for smaller transit vehicles; a fuel dispensing station; and facility generator.
The new High Valley Transit project is anticipated to be completed in the Spring of 2024.
