Installation of Table Mesa Pedestrian Bridge Concrete Example of BRT Progress

The installation of the steel girder framed pedestrian bridge on top of twin concrete platforms at the Table Mesa Park-n-Ride is a physical example of progress and investment on the US 36 Bus Rapid Transit and Multimodal Corridor.  The $7 Million bridge which spans US 36, connects the main portion of the Park-n-Ride Station with the Denver Bound lanes of the turnpike.   This will save three or more minutes for buses heading east out of Boulder and improve operational flow and add capacity at the facility.  The bridge is expected to be operational in March 2013.
