Bridge dedicated to Utah Jazz star Donovan Mitchell

News

A bridge in downtown Salt Lake City was dedicated Tuesday to Utah Jazz star guard Donovan Mitchell. 

A Iarge bridge at the center of The Gateway was officially renamed The Donovan Mitchell Bridge. It’s part of a $100 million redevelopment project in the sports, arts and entertainment district. 

Local artists Chuck Landvatter and Jared Andrew Smith collaborated to create a mural for the bridge that crosses 100 South at Rio Grande Street. 

Mitchell says he is honored by the dedication. 

“Knowing where I came from, I didn’t expect to be in the NBA, let alone win the dunk contest, let alone make the playoffs, let alone be where we are today in our playoff position and have a bridge named after me,” said Mitchell. “I still can’t comprehend.”

Although only in his second season with the Utah Jazz, Mitchell is known around the community for his acts of kindness.

Owners of The Gateway say the bridge will “serve as a reminder of his great contributions to Utah.”
