The entrance roads around Salt Lake International Airport will soon be changing, thanks to more than $5 million in funds coming from the Federal Aviation Administration.
The office of Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, announced that the FAA has decided to give the airport $5,008,803 from its 1989 discretionary funds.Louis Miller, director of Salt Lake City airports, said most of the money will go to improve entrance roads.
He said some elevations of roads will be changed, so stopping will not be required at some intersections. Also, better access to the extended 40th West is planned. "It should help smooth the flow of traffic," he said.
Some of the money will also go to improve runway signs, Miller said.
