SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Salt Lake City's Ninth and Ninth district will get a one-point-five (M) million dollar makeover this summer.

The city's east-side shopping area at 900 South and 900 East will have pedestrian countdown timers, benches and decorative street lighting.

The city may also build a tree-lined median that would eliminate two traffic lanes if approved.

A city Engineering Department employee says construction on 900 South between Windsor Street and 1000 East will start the end of May and finish in October.

The street also will be resurfaced, the traffic signal replaced and the city will add planters and bike racks to the sidewalks.
