Description 

I-70 in Utah was originally built in the 1960s as a "two-lane Interstate", crossing this bridge in both directions. US-50 was subsequently rerouted from US-6 onto I-70. In 1990, I-70/US-50 in Utah was widened to four lanes, which is why the westbound bridge is more recent than this eastbound bridge.

The newly added street views from the 4WD road underneath, really show off this pair of nice steel arches.
