Since 2016, construction crews have been hard at work to replace both auto and pedestrian bridges as a part of the Grand Avenue Bridge project in Colorado. The $125.6 million job is the largest project western Colorado has seen in over 25 years.
A progress report, released Aug. 31, provided updates on recent construction activity:
Workers will place nine steel tub girders over the Colorado River and the Union Pacific Railroad between Aug. 31 and Sept. 10.
Crews have already poured concrete for the south abutment to connect the Grand Avenue Bridge with Co-82.
The center pier was removed from the Colorado River.
Crews have also poured a concrete walkway on the east wing street.
The auto bridge is expected to be finished July 1, 2018.
