Signals to be Switched Off at Holly Brige

November 8, 2011 - Southeastern Colorado/CDOT Region 2 - FASTER Bridge Project Almost Complete - PROWERS COUNTY – The traffic signals alternating northbound and southbound traffic through the bridge reconstruction site on State Highway 89 near Holly are scheduled to be removed by the middle of next week, weather permitting.

On Wednesday, November 16, the signals will be turned off and continuous two-way traffic resumes through the area.  Signals have been controlling traffic since early July.

Remaining work includes seeding, mulching, and signing. Project completion is scheduled by the end of November.

The new bridge replaces one built in 1949 that was deemed structurally-deficient and functionally obsolete.

FASTER – Funding Advancements for Surface Transportation and Economic Recovery – fully funded the $5.5 million project.  Financed by vehicle registration and rental car fees, FASTER established a Statewide Bridge Enterprise, funding the replacement or repairing Colorado’s most urgent structurally-deficient and functionally-obsolete bridges.  Additional information is accessible at:
