The geological formation is referred to as Pikes Peak.

When you say Pikes Peak, are you talking about Pikes Peak Ocean to Ocean Highway?

The bridge is called the "Crocker Bridge"??? With it now a mundane concrete thing it's new name should be "Crock of Sh**"

Mr. Vance:

Pardon me for a stupid question, but did you drive over this bridge recently? I would have sworn MODOT replaced this bridge, but I haven't gone that way in years. I noticed the google picture said 2012 so I am confused.

New bridge is complete. One lane closed down for final demo of old bridge.

Oops. I should have said that the picture is taken looking South, not South Portal.

This bridge will be lost soon. New bridge construction of the two "flood" spans are in full swing now. The project is slated to be fully completed Fall 2009.

MoDot has this bridge in the planning stages to be replaced in the next few years. They are discussing the option of closing the road to traffic during construction to save costs. New bridge is needed but the locals aren't happy about this plan. Detour would be several miles.

Locals call it Crocker bridge.
