In the summer of 2015, a major project to replace the bridge spanning Brush Creek on Hwy 6 west of Eagle, Colorado began. The extensive earthwork for this required 15,000 yards of material hauled in to create a temporary detour bridge. A new concrete box culvert was installed on Hockett Gulch and drainage ditches were improved. The existing bridge was removed and replaced with a longer and wider bridge. The detour bridge and temporary roadway was then removed.
In the fall of 2013, replacement of the pedestrian bridge took place. This bridge allowed hikers and recreational users access to hiking trails in the White Water National Forest near Sylvan Lake State Park. This project included new concrete footers and riparian improvements. Also included was the addition of new restroom facilities.
In the summer of 2016, a major bridge on Highway 6 near Edwards required replacement. A temporary bridge was installed next to the existing bridge and traffic was transferred for the duration of the project. The existing bridge was removed and replaced with a stronger and wider bridge. The creek bed below was enhanced with rip rap for protection. Traffic was then moved to the new bridge and the area the temporary bridge sat was restored to natural vegetation.
