The Utah Transportation Commission has approved an additional $125,000 for construction for the Benson Marina Bridge in Cache County and $206,000 for improvements to Sunset Boulevard in St. George.
Commission spokesman Kim Morris said $260,000 was originally appropriated for the bridge."But the final engineer's estimate for the project came in at $385,000, so the commission approved the additional $125,000, of which 80 percent is federal funds," Morris said.
The Sunset Boulevard grading, draining, surfacing and signalization project, he said, originally had been approved at $1.25 million.
"It was increased by $206,000, of which 91 percent is federal urban funds," the spokesman said, because the final estimate was for $1.4 million.
