JACKSON COUNTY – The Michigan River Bridge replacement project on State Highway (SH) 125, one mile north of Walden, is now complete. The project, which began in fall 2012, replaced a structurally deficient bridge in order to improve motorist safety. With its June completion, it finished on time and on budget.

The original Michigan River Bridge was built in 1937 and had been deemed structurally deficient in a 2009 audit of Colorado bridges. This $1.5 million bridge project, contracted to American Civil Constructors, Inc. (ACC), was funded by CDOT and the Federal Highway Administration.
