The restoration of Park City's historic Main Street is continuing.

The Historic Park City Alliance is working on a 10-year overhaul of pipes and sidewalks along the tourist town's central commercial thoroughfare.

The first phase was completed last spring. Phase two is scheduled to begin April 1 and will include a gas line replacement of a 60-year-old line and installation of new granite sidewalks and curbs.

Private projects also underway include renovations to the Silver Queen building, Main Street Mall and the Rio Grande Building.

"The combined efforts of private landowners and the Park City Municipal Corporation provide much-needed improvements to our downtown," said Alison Butz, the Historic Park City Alliance's executive director. "Historic Park City is regarded as a charming historic downtown district. In order to maintain the charming nature, it is critical we dedicate resources to responsibly care for the district."
