The Colorado Department of Transportation along with contractor Tricon 2, LLC has completed the structure replacement project in Bent County. The project location was on US 50, 6 miles east of Las Animas. The project replaced an existing structure with a concrete box culvert to provide a drainage system that is more manageable and weather resistant for the area. While working on the project, crews paved the roadway and replaced/upgraded existing guardrail. Rumble strips were also added as a safety feature.
