A (metal) bridge out for grasp
It seems the existing structure, built in 1935, needs replacement because it is functionally and structurally obsolete, according to the DOT’s website.
So the department is offering the 150-foot-long, 33-foot-wide, 13-foot-high metal truss bridge to the first person or group willing to pay for the disassembly, relocation, and re-assembly of the bridge, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, according to the Denver Post.
The agency’s historian, Lisa Schoch, told the paper that the bridge “may be a good candidate for re-use as a pedestrian or recreational trail bridge.”
