95th Avenue Bridge Reopens

The 95th Avenue Bridge in northwest Greeley reopens this Thursday following repair work started earlier this year.

Prior to its closure, city and state officials closely monitored the aging bridge and its structural health. Last summer, based on the recommendation of the state bridge inspector, Greeley put weight restrictions into place on 95th Avenue Bridge. Signs of aging indicated the bridge should no longer regularly support vehicles weighing more than 10 tons.

After the restrictions went into place, city officials started designing repairs. The bridge’s condition continued to worsen, and eventually, the state bridge inspector and Greeley’s city engineer elected to completely close the bridge before its condition deteriorated further and before it became an increased safety concern.

With the repair work completed, this important north-south connection for Greeley and Weld County can safely reopen. This bridge will close again this fall for about six weeks to perform preventive maintenance to help maintain the bridge’s safety. The exact dates of that closure will depend on water levels.
