The day when one more bridge was closed
With one bridge out and two others constricted for the COSMIX project, the last thing the city needed was the loss of one of its normally unaffected spans over I-25
during an evening rush hour.
But that's what happened Feb. 5 when a construction company broke a gas line at Uintah Street and Glen Avenue. This forced Uintah to be closed both ways for about 2 ½ hours and reduced traffic to a crawl leaving the downtown.
No major traffic accidents resulted from the mishap.
