“For bridge buffs; with nice city park”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2011

This bridge in Fort Morgan is a bit of an attraction in and of itself. It is one of the notable Marsh Arch Bridges, and one of the largest in the country, with its 11 arches of reinforced concrete. It spans the South Platte River in Fort Morgan, just north of I-76 on route 52. It was built in 1923 and is on the National Register of Historic Places. It's now used as a pedestrian bridge, and is a little difficult to photograph.

The city water works just south of the bridge has a nice steam railway "worker" engine on display. In between the bridge and the water works is a beautiful city park, very suitable for a picnic or relaxation after a day of traveling.
