Steamboat briefs: Bridge over Trout Creek to be closed until June 1

— The bridge over Trout Creek on Routt County Road 33 (Twentymile Road) is closed until June 1, Routt County Road and Bridge Department Supervisor Paul Draper said.

Draper said the county was awarded a $200,000 Energy and Mineral Impact Assistance grant from the Colorado Department of Local Affairs that requires a 50 percent match. He said Duckels Construction bid the project to repair the bridge’s failing headwalls at just less than $350,000.

A detour will direct drivers onto C.R. 33B to C.R. 179 and back to C.R. 33, Draper said.
