The Colorado Department of Transportation finished the bridge replacement project on US Highway 34 south of Grand Lake on July 28.

The project began in April 2019 to replace a structurally deficient bridge on US 34 over the Colorado River.

The project started with building a temporary bridge for traffic to allow for work on a new bridge. After a winter shut down, crews continued work including asphalt paving, detour removal and restoration as well as improving grading, drainage and paving.

The project cost $3.4 million according to CDOT’s website, and had originally been slated for completion in October 2019.
