I-70 Bridge Rehab at Tennyson Street and Sheridan Boulevard

In June, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) began installing fiber reinforced polymer (FRP)—material used to rehabilitate and restore the strength of deteriorating structures—at the Sheridan Boulevard and Tennyson Street bridges at I-70. This work will strengthen the bridge by repairing concrete structural pillars and bridge deck undersides. Crews will also remove loose and damaged concrete before installing the FRP.

Project benefits include:

  • improved resiliency;
  • corrosion resistance; and
  • minimal required future maintenance.

The project is expected to last through October 2016.
