Project Overview

  • Replacing the upper deck portion of the Little Prickly Pear Creek Bridge located on Walsh Street.

Why is the project needed?

The bridge deck surfaces are heavily worn down. Resurfacing the I-15 bridges will improve the driving surface and extend the life of the bridge. The upper deck portion of the Little Prickly Pear Creek Bridge has deteriorated and needs to be replaced. The rest of the bridge is in good shape and will remain in place.

The resurfacing and replacement of these bridge decks will help ensure the safety and integrity of the roadway for motorists and the community of Wolf Creek well into the future.

Anticipated Construction

Construction is anticipated to take place in 2021 and will likely involve slight delays, lane shifts, reduced lane widths and alternating one-way traffic. MDT plans to maintain access over Little Prickly Pear Creek Bridge during construction, however, restricted vehicle widths and weights are likely.
