Shields Street Bridge Replacement
The City of Fort Collins completed the replacement of a structurally deficient bridge on Shields Street just south of Rolland Moore Park in June 2013. This bridge had the second lowest sufficiency rating of all the bridges inspected within the city. Thank you for your patience during all phases of this project.
New Bridge Highlights
- Two 12 through lanes in each direction, 10 striped center turn lane, 6 on street bike lanes
- Urban design elements - check out plans for a decorative pedestrian railing.
- Utility relocations and upgrades
The City of Fort Collins Engineering Department and ZAK Dirt, Inc. are partners in managing the construction activities.
Federal funding has been awared to replace this bridge, and the City of Fort Collins was able to provide the required local match through Keep Fort Collins Great tax funds.
