Description 

This repurposed bridge over the Blue River serves a subdivision of ranchettes. It is considerably more massive than is required for a residential subdivision. From its appearance, it might have been built in the 1920s or 1930s. It may have been moved from elsewhere, or possibly it was originally here, on a previous alignment of nearby CO 9. It is closed to the public, but it can be easily seen from highway CO 9.
