Two heavily traveled and deteriorated structures in Denver, the Bronco Arch Bridge on Interstate 25 and the Santa Fe Street Bridge, will be replaced by 2012. A Colorado Department of Transportation spokeswoman says engineers have confirmed both bridges are safe for travel and cost is the main reason for the construction delay. The Bronco Arch bridge, which will turn 60 next year, will receive $30 million in state and federal dollars that will allow for a new concrete structure. The Santa Fe bridge will cost $60 million, and those funds will come from FASTER, a state transportation bill that increased vehicle registration fees to pay for bridge repairs.
