City of Colorado Springs / City Engineering / North Nevada Avenue Bridge Rehabilitation Project

North Nevada Avenue Bridge Rehabilitation Project

North Nevada Avenue Bridge
North Nevada Avenue Bridge
The bridge was originally constructed in 1947.  The concrete deck and railings have reached the end of their useful life and are in need of replacement.  Holes have formed in the deck, which have required the installation of steel plates.  The railings are in poor condition.

Project Description: The concrete deck and bridge railings will be completely replaced using staged construction.  The first stage will replace the deck and railings on the northbound structure.  The second stage will address the southbound structure.  Other project work will include rehabilitation of other portions of the structures, improving pedestrian facilities, landscaping at the south end of the bridge, accommodating future streetcar service and permanently closing the median at Lilac Street.

During construction, one lane of traffic will be maintained in each direction.  Access to residences and businesses will be maintained throughout construction.

Schedule:  Construction began in December 2012 with an anticipated completion date of March 2014.

Total Project Cost: $2,100,000
