|Use of Innovative Technologies on 4500 South Bridge Replacement
Salt Lake City, UT
“I was able to witness the destruction of the old bridge and the installation of the new bridge and was amazed at the precision and short time frame in which this was completed.”
Utah DOT’s use of innovative construction and bidding methods, especially for bridges was exemplified during the 4500 South Bridge replacement in 2007. The project, which replaced a 3.5 million pound, 172 foot long single-span structure bridge in 53 hours, was witnessed by more than 60 department of transportation executives from around the country, thousands of spectators and the news media – with more than 100 local stories and coverage nationally on CNN and ABC News.
