4500 South Bridge

4500 South has a steep slope as it climbs the shoulder of Mount Olympus. The bridge across the I215E has a steep gradiant. Because of the steep angle and salt used during the winter, the bridge wore out faster than most bridges. Although the bridge is only a few decades old, it is being replaced during the Fall of 2007.

To replace the bridge, UDOT is using a new accelerated bridge replacement process. Rather than building the bridge in place. They are building the bridge along the side of the freeway, they will then swing the bridge into place.
