Orem City Mayor Richard Brunst praised the new Utah Valley University pedestrian bridge at the June 14 groundbreaking ceremony at the Orem Intermodal Transit Center.


The Utah Valley Pedestrian Bridge will be the world’s first curved inverted Fink truss.


The pedestrian bridge will provide a time-saving connection between the UTA FrontRunner rail station and the Utah Valley University campus.
