CONSTRUCTION SEASON – Lobos Structures crews  worked to remove large sections of concrete on the West Main bridge over the Uncompahgre River last weekend. Ron Alexander with the Colorado Department of Transportation said the substructure of the bridge is in good shape, and that the project aims to replace the "deck," or top portion, of the bridge. Alexander said the project is expected to take 140 working days and the four-foot sidewalk on the bridge will be replaced with a 10-foot sidewalk connecting with the city's trail system. The bridge, built in 1968, is one of a couple of CDOT projects around Montrose this year. At Blue Summit, 10 miles east of Montrose on Colo. Hwy 50, a new climbing lane will be built this year, as well. (Photo by William Woody)
