State Bridge

Eagle County

Although now largely collapsed, the 1890 wooden pin-connected, six-panel Howe through truss was an essential span over the Grande (Colorado) River.

State Bridge

Its collapse appears to be at least partially the result of a fire occurring after its 1985 listing in the National Register.  Sufficient material remains in place to visually mark the location of a pivotal span, important to the development of North Park and the Yampa Valley sections of northwestern Colorado.  Listed under Highway Bridges in Colorado Multiple Property Submission.
