Skip Navigation LinksWho We Are

We are a steel fabrication company committed to excellence through knowledge, experience and dedication.

Utah Pacific Bridge & Steel has a long and rich fabrication history that dates back to 1975 and includes the fabrication of over 900 of the complex bridges that connect our nation’s transportation system.

"Our Place in Modern History"

One of these many projects occurred in 1986 as we completed bridge C637, the final link of Interstate 80 from coast to coast. Ironically this 820’ long curved bridge with 15’ deep, 90 ton girders is just 60 miles south of Promontory Point Utah where the Golden Spike was driven to complete the Transcontinental Railroad 117 years earlier.

Our dedicated personnel have the expertise to provide the best service in the business. From arch and truss bridges to complex curved plate and box girder bridges, our team has the experience to support and strengthen any project so that it will succeed at all levels.

Our modern bridge fabrication facilities and exclusive computer-controlled equipment were developed and constructed over a 35 year period to fabricate large and heavy girders for complex bridges.  When combined with our cleaning and painting facilities and our transportation and erection expertise, Utah Pacific Bridge & Steel is a true leader in the industry.
