SALT LAKE CITY -- Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski announced ten new road construction projects Monday.

The Mayor called the projects the start of a "new look and feel" for the city.

The projects will be funded by $5 million already set aside, and an $87 million bond issue on the November ballot the city hopes will be approved by voters.

A 1/2 cent sales tax increase recently added will also provide money to repair and maintain roads in the city.

The largest project will be a four-block section of Gladiola Street in the area of 700 south and 3400 west.

That section of the road will get a complete rebuild.

Other projects will also be complete rebuilds while others will be upgrades aimed at preserving pavement.

All of the construction projects will include new sidewalks, underground utilities, and bike lanes.

Here is a complete list of the construction projects:

Pavement Preservation Projects:

  • 1200 East: from 600 South to 800 South
  • 1500 East: from 900 South to 1300 South
  • 1700 South: from 1700 East to 1900 East
