How is the City involved in the Grand Avenue Bridge Project?
The Grand Avenue Bridge Project is a $125 million project, primarily funded by the Colorado Bridge Enterprise, a government-owned business entity within the Colorado Department of Transportation. Other contributions from area governments and utility companies were also part of the funding for the bridge project.

The City of Glenwood Springs paid $3 million toward the project. Additionally, the City of Glenwood Springs and the Downtown Development Authority worked collaboratively with CDOT to ensure that details – such as brick, flagstone and ironwork – were integrated into the overall design for the vehicle and pedestrian bridges. These decorative details were designed with Glenwood Springs’ context and character in mind.
