MASSIVE SPREAD FOOTING KEY TO CAUSEWAY RECONSTRUCTION

In Davis County, Utah, a reconstructed causeway/bridge leads to a popular island park that had been inaccessible since the mid-1980s. The causeway/bridge to Antelope Island was under 2.4 m (8 ft) of water due to record elevations in the Great Salt Lake. This article describes the original structure, the components of the structure that were salvaged, and the redesign of the 11.2 km-long (7 m) causeway/bridge. The unique feature of the redesign is the spread footing, which is not a new foundation system, but one not commonly used in bridges.
