The new bridge is open!
The construction project consisted of the creation of a 180-foot long steel truss bridge with a concrete and asphalt bridge deck. The bridge that washed away during the September 2013 flood event was a 73-foot long concrete structure that was built in 1960. The new bridge is rated to withstand future 100-year flood events. The bridge/road project cost approximately $2.26 million to construct and is eligible for federal reimbursement. JUB Engineers assisted with project design and construction consultation and SEMA Construction, Inc. completed the work
During the September 2013 flood event, Old St. Vrain Road was damaged and the bridge over South St. Vrain Creek was completely destroyed.
Construction began on the new bridge in September 2017. The road reopened in May 2018.
