Bridges In Costilla County
Vega II Bridge Repair 2010
The bridge was damaged when a vehicle swerved and ran into the South bridge railing.
Martin & Martin Engineering did a damage assessment on the bridge. The vehicle owner’s insurance company settled for $50,000. The county then hired Davis Engineering to provide the drawings and specifications for repairs. The project was bid out and Alcon Construction was the low bidder and was awarded the bid.
The repairs were completed in 2011 and the project was closed.
Bridge CS242-S0.4-SMME (On County Road 21 just East of CR L.7)
The bridge was inspected by Stantec Consulting for CDOT. The bridge required some engineering to complete the repairs noted in the Inspection Summary. Davis Engineering was hired to provide the drawing and specification for repairs in 2011. Work on this bridge will commence once the engineering is completed and if needed, the project is to be bid out.
Costilla County Bridges were rated overall in the 80th percentile in the 2010-2011 Inspection, which according to Stantec Consulting was above average for the state.
The county will be repairing/replacing approach and bridge rails as the funds become available.
