US$122.7 mm design-build bridge construction project awarded, Utah
A US$122.7 million design-build project in Utah to renew bridge portions of I-80 and I-215, two major highways in the Salt Lake Valley, has been awarded to Sterling Construction Company. The renewal work on these projects is expected 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.
