SR 279 Underpass

Moab, Utah


United States Department of Energy (DOE)

December 01, 2009

Energy Solutions was given a grant to provide a safe underpass across SR-279 which is used to haul radioactive uranium tailings off site.

The United States Department of Energy (DOE) worked with Nielson Construction and Contech to choose a twincell CON/SPAN Underpass Bridge for the solution.

The structure was installed on pedestal walls, large enough for the containers to be safely transported under the highway and to a rail spur.

Challenges on the project included an accelerated schedule, skew and multiple safety requirements by the DOE.
