For those of us who travel through the Northwest side of town the Pecos Street Bridge over Interstate-70 has been out of commission for some time now and over the weekend Interstate-70 was closed between Interstate-25 and Federal Boulevard. Pretty soon this bridge will be back open and include a new pedestrian bridge connecting the Chaffee Park and Sunnyside neighborhoods and Roundabouts on either sides of the highway on Pecos.

Thanks to CDOT there are some very interesting time lapse videos available to us of the entire bridge construction process,

and possibly even more impressive the successful roll-in of the 2,400 ton bridge which was completed over the weekend; 4.5 hours ahead of schedule.
