US 191 Colorado River Bridge

Moab, Utah

Owner: Utah Department of Transportation

Design / Construction Engineering and Inspection: FIGG

The US 191 bridges over the Colorado River blend seamlessly with the spectacular landscape of Utah’s Canyonlands region. Utah’s first segmental concrete bridges were built from above in balanced cantilever to allow for continual recreational use of the river and surrounding trails during construction. With a main span length of 438', the 1,025’ long twin bridges also set a record as Utah’s longest concrete bridge span. A unique public involvement process, led by FIGG, ensured a design representative of the community’s vision of “A Bridge in Harmony with the Environment.”
