Avondale Bridge

Pueblo County

Removed from the register in 2017.

Completed by the Pueblo Bridge Company in 1913, this vehicular bridge over the Arkansas River was supposed to be a steel structure.  The design was changed to a three-span Luten arch when the steel could not be delivered prior to high water in 1913.

Avondale Bridge

It is one of the few bridges in Pueblo County that withstood the major flood of 1921.  Listed under the Highway Bridges in Colorado Multiple Property Submission, the bridge was replaced in 2006 with a modern flat span concrete and steel design and has subsequently been removed from the National Register.
