MAGNA, Utah (AP) -- Work recreating Magna's downtown is set to start tomorrow morning.

Plans include an improved street design, new curbs, sidewalks and street lights along 2700 South from 8800 West to 9200 West.

Magna Chamber of Commerce President Laura McDermaid said this will revitalize the downtown area.

The project is being funded by federal dollars, money from the Redevelopment District Authority and Salt Lake County Public Works.

McDermaid says the project ultimately will include restoring facades of older buildings and creating a large residential development west of downtown.

It also will include a new mining museum, a new library and extending Main Street's new look east of 8800 West.
