I think it is amazing they can do this. It is needed but curious as to the cost
and if a savings how much. I agree that the down time and traffic has been a big
influence in building the bridge off-site and then moving into place. I would
guess the people who use the free-way in this area appreciates the new system. I
do know that UDOT very respected throughout the transportation world for being
forward thinking on bridge construction. It is nice to see creative thinking and
success such as the moving bridge.
Another successful bridge move. All parties make these incredibly complex feats
seem like just another day on the job. Congratulations to the team - still a lot
of work left to do and the clock is running; keep it up.
I am impressed that someone had the IDEA to build the bridge OFF-SITE and then
transport it and put it into place! That's a true engineering feat! Are these wise transportation dollars at work? Yeah! The amount of commerce
that is generated in Utah County alone with the large college population helps
stabilize the entire state of Utah, as well as the other larger metropolitan
areas. It's a vision for the future while looking at the present and seeing what
could be done, without being over taxing and overbearing. I wish
Oregon would think that way, instead of enacting law upon law that has no
funding, and demanding that money be found. It's definitely squeezing blood from
So Gentile what is wrong with coming out against something that is wrong? It
doesn't matter if you are a liberal or conservative, if it is wrong, it is
wrong. Why do liberals bring up things in the past and say all conservatives are
against it because a conservative backed it. I guess we need to put all
democrats in the same category as all liberals. Now that would be hilarious!Way to call all fruit, apples!
"my problem is with liberals who want to spend money we don't have on
projects we don't need" is hillarious. Remember the "project to
nowhere" in ... Alaska defended by a vice-presidential candidate by the
name of.... Palin!!!Please genuflect before posting.
Re: MenaceToSociety | 1:31 p.m. March 27, 2011 Since you're not
against these projects, since these projects are important, and since they have
funded by federal fuel taxes I see no problem with this money being used for the
purpose intended.My problem is with liberals who want to spend money
we don't have on projects we don't need.
Where are the protests over out of control federal spending? It's amazing all
the complaints we have about federal spending, then those same people praise
federal spending when it's in our state. I-15 reconstruction, hello! NSA spy
center, hello! Orrin Hatch, hello!Personally, I am not against
these projects. They're important. But the hypocrisy of those who complain
about spending in other states and praise spending in our state is a waste of
time and should end.
A football field + end zones is 360 feet, so 254 feet not even close. Do you
mean 354 feet?
