Foothills Parkway Bridge Deck Replacement Over US 36 Finished

November 22, 2013 - Northeastern Colorado/CDOT Region 4 - BOULDER COUNTY — The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) has completed a bridge deck replacement project on Foothills Parkway (State Highway 157) over US 36.

The project began in October 2012, and fell behind slightly due to late spring 2013 storms. It finished on budget.

“Rehabilitating this bridge creates a safer trip for motorists both on US 36 and Foothills Parkway,” said Project Engineer Stacy DeWitt. “We’re thankful to motorists for being so understanding of the project impacts.”

The original bridge deck of Foothills Parkway over US 36 was built in 1971 and was in poor condition, warranting significant repairs. In addition to replacing the bridge deck, crews also performed tie-in-work to the existing highway on both sides of the bridge. The project helped improve bridge safety for motorists merging from Foothills Parkway onto eastbound US 36.

The $1.3 million project was contracted to Jalisco International, Inc.
