Gerber Construction of Draper was the apparent low bidder on a job to replace a narrow, wooden bridge on Cottage Avenue (8755 South) west of State Street in Sandy.

Gerber's bid of $60,496 was below the official Utah Department of Transportation engineer's estimate of $86,713.The one-lane bridge over an irrigation canal will be dismantled and replaced by a wider, reinforced concrete box culvert. Work will begin in early spring and last 45 days. Cottage Avenue will be closed at the site, and traffic will be detoured to Monroe Avenue.
