A crack in the bridge over the Dolores River east of Bedrock closed a charter school through the weekend and inconvenienced other residents.
Officials with the Colorado Department of Transportation closed the bridge just east of Bedrock on Tuesday after the crack was discovered. On Thursday officials said they hoped passenger cars would be allowed to cross the bridge this weekend.
Traffic through most of the week, however, was stopped on either side of the Colorado Highway 90 bridge about 15 miles east of the Utah line.
Environmental organizations have appealed a recent ruling that upheld a water-rights transfer to a planned nuclear-generating station west of Green River, Utah. Several Utah environmental organizations, small-business owners and residents led by HEAL Utah, Uranium Watch and Living Rivers, are asking the Utah Court of Appeals to reconsider a November trial court decision approving the transfer of rights to 53,600 acre feet of water to the project proposed by Blue Castle Holdings.
