MILLCREEK — The Salt Lake County Council recently granted $4.7 million to Millcreek and Holladay, and $942,500 to Millcreek and Salt Lake City, respectively for joint transportation projects.

Comment on this story

The $4.7 million will be added to $4 million Millcreek and Holladay have already secured from the federal government to rebuild 3900 South east of 2300 East to I-215. In addition to rebuilding the road, the project will include bike lanes, sidewalks and improvements to curbs and gutters.

While the federal grant won't be available for several years, Millcreek and Holladay are working on ways to advance the funding. In the meantime, environmental and engineering work will begin.

The $942,500 grant will be used by Millcreek and Salt Lake City to fund a study of ways to improve traffic conditions and flow between Sugar House and Millcreek. The study will look specifically at extending the S-Line into Millcreek as well as other transit alternatives.
