8 road construction projects planned for SLC in 2018

SALT LAKE CITY — Salt Lake City will undergo eight road construction projects in 2018 that will cost a total of $5 million, according to Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski.

“As Salt Lake City continues to grow, it is important we keep investing in preserving and improving our road network to adapt to this growth and accommodate anticipated travel demands,” Biskupski said in an emailed statement. “Robust infrastructure is one of the aspects needed to maintain the high quality of life our residents expect.”

Four of the projects will focus on preserving the pavement with new layers of asphalt to seal the surfaces and prolong the roads’ lifespans. The remaining four are road reconstruction projects.

“These projects will help us maintain a road network that is safe and sound for years to come,” city engineer Matt Cassel said in an emailed statement. “While we realize construction delays and detours will be an inconvenience for travelers, we are committed to working safely and expediently to get in, get out and stay out once we get the job done.”
