PROVO -- UDOT crews moved a key bridge involved in the I-15 CORE Project into place Saturday morning.

Crews used self-propelled modular transporters to move the bridge -- which is a piece of the new Provo Center Street interchange -- into place around 7:30 a.m. Despite the snow and rain, the move took just 90 minutes to complete.

This was the 25th bridge move to take place in Utah. The Center Street bridge is 120 feet long and 90 feet wide. It is one of 63 bridges that will be new, rebuilt or modified on the I-15 CORE project -- which involves 24 miles of freeway reconstruction.

Both the interchange and the CORE project are expected to be completed in December 2012.

Provo Center Street will reopen Monday.
