Project Summary
The proposed project is to replace the existing Montezuma County Bridge Structure 083000N01.80016.  The bridge is located on Montezuma County Road N, approximately 1.8 miles west of US 491 over Alkali Creek and northwest of Cortez. The new bridge will be a single span structure constructed using concrete “Bulb-T” girders and driven H-Pile foundations.  The designed single span is approximately 76 feet in length and an overall bridge width of 37 feet.  Wing-walls with riprap will be utilized to provide 500-year scour protection.  The project will require a minor realignment of County Road N of approximately 657 feet to accommodate the new bridge and its approaches.
