Another major bridge rebuild is underway in Glenwood Springs. Work on the 27th Street Bridge, also known as the "Sunlight Bridge," began January 2. Traffic delays around the project are expected to last most of the year. The bridge, which carries more than 14,000 vehicles a day, is one of the lowest-rated in the state. But that doesn't make it unsafe, according to Jessica Bowser, an Assistant City Engineer with Glenwood Springs and Project Manager for the bridge replacement. KDNK's Mark Duggan spoke to Bowser about expected delays and why the bridge gets a poor rating.
