Among notable projects added to the funding list for the first time over the next six years are:
• $900,000 to double-track the Sugar House streetcar line. It now runs on a single track in some areas. Adding a second track could allow streetcars to run every 15 minutes instead of the current every 20 minutes.
• $37,500 for a study to develop a plan to add a "family-friendly" bikeway on North Temple through downtown Salt Lake City, consider a separate bus lane there, and improve pedestrian crossings, bus stops and bus shelters.
• $750,000 to expand bike sharing programs.
• $958,000 to buy new Utah Transit Authority Buses to run up Ogden Canyon toward ski resorts there. Currently, that route uses old ski buses from Salt Lake County.
• $4 million to reconstruct 4100 South in West Valley City.
• $6 million to continue extending Porter Rockwell Boulevard eastward in Bluffdale. Eventually it will connect the new Mountain View Corridor highway with Interstate 15.
• $3.2 million to realign the collector road for the Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy with 9270 South at State Street.
• $4.4 million for a Redwood Road mobility and beautification project from 4100 South to Bruin Boulevard. It is designed to decrease "conflict points" to increase safety for pedestrians and motorists.
• $1 million to add curb, gutter, sidewalk, shoulders and a center-turn lane to 3200 West in South Jordan.
• $1.6 million to expand or replace a park-and-ride lot on Wasatch Boulevard at Hillsborough Pond in Cottonwood Heights.
• $1 million to improve the intersection of Main Street and 650 North in Clearfield.
Council Chairman Bret Millburn, who is also a Davis County Commissioner, said the long-range planning "ultimately helps to facilitate better traffic flow, increase travel options and improve safety."
