The Meacham and Union Pacific Railroad Bridge was constructed in 1925.
Extensive deterioration, increasing maintenance costs and potential safety concerns require a complete bridge replacement.
The Meacham Creek and Union Pacific Railroad is located on the I-84 Frontage Road at milepost 239.45. The existing bridge is structurally deficient and does not provide adequate clearance between piers and the railroad tracks.
Due to a variety of maintenance needs and increasing maintenance costs, we will replace the bridge instead of making repairs. This will improve safety and reduce future maintenance.
The bridge has a number of issues that require attention.
We will remove the existing bridge and construct a new one. Other elements include:
This project is estimated to cost $6.9 million.
This project will require a full road closure so we can remove the existing bridge and construct a new bridge.
We will establish a detour around the closure via I-84 Exit 234. Temporary signs and portable message boards will direct traffic.
