120 Bridges in Colorado Still Need Repairs After Flood

Weld County Gov.-Facebook by Nikki Stamison

The Colorado Department of Transportation has completed it’s inspections of the 411 bridges on the state highway system that were potentially impacted by recent flooding in northeast and eastern Colorado. 

Of the 411 bridges, 120 were determined to be stable but in need of repair.  The remaining 291 are currently open with no need for repairs.  None were determined to be destroyed and in need of replacement.

“Early in the flooding it had initially appeared as though some of the bridges may have been destroyed when viewing aerial photography,” said Josh Laipply, CDOT State Bridge Engineer.  “Once our inspectors got on the ground and into the more damaged sites, it became apparent that much of the damage was on the roadways approaching the bridges and that the structures, while needing repair, were still stable.’ 

There were a number of bridges owned by cities, counties and even private individuals that are off the state highway system that were reported early on.
