Streets Reconstruction Bond Background
On November 6, 2018, Salt Lake City voters approved the $87 million Funding Our Future Streets Reconstruction Bond. This funding is allowing the City to begin addressing our most deteriorating streets and, when paired with new sales tax revenue for streets maintenance, enables us to prolong the life of our entire street network.
As part of the Funding Our Future initiative, the City continues to provide residents with updates on streets reconstruction projects as they progress:
- Funding is issued as several smaller bonds totaling no more than $87 million.
- Salt Lake City sold the first $20 million installment of the bond in October 2019, and sold the second installment of $20.5 million in September 2020.
- The first streets reconstruction projects funded by the bond completed construction in 2020 (like 500 East) and more have completed construction in 2021 (like 100 South and 900 East).

Major Streets Reconstruction Projects
Major streets are high-capacity urban streets that deliver traffic at the highest level of service possible. Projects also include consideration of complete street elements like pedestrian or bicycle paths.
Local Streets Reconstruction Projects
The local streets are small streets that carry less traffic and have fewer lanes than major streets. Engineering plans to rotate funding for local streets through all seven districts.
