Accelerated Bridge Construction Will Be Used On I-80, I-215
Sterling Construction Company Inc. recently announced its subsidiary, Ralph L. Wadsworth Construction Company LLC, has been selected by the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) to renew portions of I-80 and I-215, two major highways in the Salt Lake Valley, to provide improved transportation for both local and interstate travel. The project is scheduled to commence in May 2021 and will take approximately two years to complete. This project consists of the removal and replacement of existing concrete pavement; the design and replacement of four bridge structures; and widening and adding lanes to portions of the highway. Two of the bridges will be constructed utilizing Accelerated Bridge Construction (ABC), a construction method that involves the use of advanced technologies to assemble a bridge offsite and then transport it to a project site for installation.
