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

North Nevada Avenue Bridge Rehabilitation Project

North Nevada Avenue Bridge before construction
Northbound Nevada Avenue Bridge before construction
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 were completely replaced using staged construction.  The first stage replaced the deck and railings on the northbound structure.  The second stage addressed the southbound structure.  Other project work included 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.
