Bridge Over Barriers


In October 2008 we first reported on Salt Lake's Bridge Over Barriers, saying the project to transform the underbelly of an I-15 overpass between the Guadalupe and Jackson neighborhoods of Salt Lake into a work of art might take years to complete. Our prediction proved prescient: four years later the 22,000 square foot work of art has finally been completed. Shalee Cooper, our former image editor, biked over to 300 North to take a look at the project and brought us back these images.
