The time-lapse video below shows construction of the Grand Avenue Bridge in Glenwood Springs, Co. from start to finish. Construction of the bridge began in January 2015 after four years of planning. The new bridge features wider lanes, better structural stability, more efficient traffic flow, and curved alignment, as well as an aesthetically pleasing design. Red sandstone, natural rock and brick were incorporated into the bridge to stay in character with the historic town.

The new bridge opened to traffic 10 days ahead of schedule on November 6.
