I-70 Bridge Replacement in Dotsero

Project Description

The Dotsero “green” bridge replacement project is now complete on the I-70 frontage road over the Colorado River in Dotsero. The existing structure, built in 1935, was replaced because it no longer met design standards and had become functionally obsolete and structurally deficient. Many of Colorado's bridges are in disrepair (123 bridges across the state), many of which you use every day. Through the early phases of construction, the impact to motorists will be minimal, as crews will be constructing the new bridge south of the existing one and north of I-70.

Edward Kraemer and Sons, Inc. is the contractor for this $6.2 million project that is funded through the Colorado Bridge Enterprise (CBE).

Project Timeline

The project began in September 2012 and was completed, on schedule, in September 2013.

Project Cost

The $6.2 million project has been funded through the Colorado Bridge Enterprise (CBE), which was formed in 2009 as part of the FASTER (Funding Advancement for Surface Transportation and Economic Recovery) legislation. The purpose of the CBE is to finance, repair, reconstruct and replace bridges designated as structurally deficient or functionally obsolete, and rated in poor condition. Additional transportation funding will allow us to maintain and improve the safety of our bridges. Eagle County also provided funding for the replacement.
