Video: UDOT crews remove pedestrian bridge over Bangerter Highway 12.6.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
The Utah Department of Transportation said a temporary goodbye Saturday night to the pedestrian bridge over Bangerter Highway at 7000 South in West Jordan. UDOT removed the bridge so work on a freeway-style interchange there can move forward. Bangerter Highway was closed in both directions so crews could take it down, but the road has since reopened. According to UDOT, the bridge was hauled away for future use by Salt Lake County.

Google in talks to build vast office in San Jose 7.6.2017 SFGate: Business & Technology

The Mountain View company is in early-stage discussions with San Jose officials about building more than 6 million square feet of office, research and development, retail and amenity space. The property could bring 15,000 to 20,000 jobs, most of them coming from Google, said Nanci Klein, San Jose’s assistant director of economic development. If the complex gets built and Google accounts for most of the jobs there, it could be a huge addition for the fast-growing search giant. In its scramble for space, Google is building another campus in Mountain View that will house 2,400 to 2,700 workers and give members of the public access to the shops and restaurants on the property when it opens in 2019. “As those employees are suffering through gridlock traffic every morning and evening, companies are increasingly recognizing the value of locating closer to where their employees live and particularly closer to transit,” said San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo.
