UDOT slides 1.1 million-pound bridge into place overnight
July 14, 2022
Our crews just slid a 1.1-million-pound bridge on I-15 in Cedar City using hard work, ingenuity and a little bit of dish soap last night.
This is a unique project because the bridge we’re sliding has actually been used as both the northbound and southbound bridge in the last year. We built a center bridge in between two I-15 bridges so we could shift traffic onto that bridge while demolishing the old ones and rebuilding the northbound bridge. Now, that center bridge is officially the southbound bridge.
