Bridge Offered Free ‘to a Good Home’

Boy, has Colorado got a bridge for you. Historically significant. Classic design. Free, even.

So, what’s the catch?

You just have to come dismantle it, move it and rebuild it—or pay someone to do so. (What, you expected free shipping and assembly?)

 This bridge, located on the I-70 frontage road over the Colorado River in Dotsero, is about to be replaced.

 CDOT

It’s all yours. Just come and get it. And take it away. And rebuild it.

Oh, it also needs a new deck and abutments in its new location.

The bridge, located on the I-70 frontage road over the Colorado River in Dotsero, is about to be replaced. Built in 1935, the 150-foot bridge is functionally and structurally obsolete.

Still, Colorado Department of Transportation officials think it would make a great pedestrian or recreational trail bridge.

Historical Significance

CDOT says the bridge is historically significant “for its contribution to transportation on US Highway 6 across western Colorado and because it is an excellent example of a standard Colorado State Highway Department truss design.”

The agency is currently in the design phase of a “green” bridge replacement. The project, under the auspices of the Colorado Bridge Enterprise, should be complete by spring 2014.

The CBE was formed in 2009 as part of Colorado’s FASTER (Funding Advancement for Surface Transportation and Economic Recovery) legislation. CBE’s purpose is to finance, repair, rebuild and replace bridges that are structurally deficient, functionally obsolete, or in poor condition.

Come and get it by contacting project manager Siri Roman at (970) 328-6385 or siri.roman@dot.state.co.us; or public relations manager Ashley Mohr at (303) 757-9437 or ashley.mohr@dot.state.co.us.
