February 6, 2013 (Fort Collins, CO) - The replacement of the Mulberry Street Bridge over the Poudre River by the Colorado Department of Transportation will be starting in late 2013. The City’s Utility Department will relocate major sewer and water lines just upstream of the existing bridge to accommodate the new wider road bridge. The Utility will begin work this month with the completion of the work scheduled for May. During this time frame the Poudre Trail at the Mulberry Bridge will be closed and trail users will be detoured along Lincoln Street and Lemay Avenue. Trail users are encouraged to avoid the construction area for their safety and to allow the contractor to efficiently complete their work.
