The City of Colorado Springs will hold a public Open House on Tuesday, June 15, to gather public input about a project to replace the stone bridge on Evans Avenue, near the entrance to North Cheyenne Canon Park. The open house will run from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Cheyenne Mountain Junior High School, 1200 W. Cheyenne Road.
City and project engineers will be ready to talk about the project and listen to concerns. Three public meetings will be held, this is the first.
The Evans Avenue Bridge is considered structurally deficient. On a scale of 100, it ranks a 29--the lowest in the City of Colorado Springs. While the bridge is currently safe for normal traffic, it must be replaced before it becomes unsafe.
