The Utah Department of Transportation hopes to be "beaming" after the weekend, when an overdue I-80 bridge over Highland Drive should get its new, improved beam.
The beam replacement order is in, and UDOT says it should be here soon. "They're just temporary supports for the bridge; and so once they get here, we'll put them on. And the plan is to move the bridge Monday night around 11:00," said UDOT spokeman Adan Carrillo.
Carrillo says UDOT is now about a week behind in its I-80 bridge installations, but he believes crews can make up the time.
In addition, Carrillo said, "We're still saving a whole year of construction by using this technology."
Carrillo says bridges on the interstate should go in every six days after this one.
