92nd Avenue Bridge over U.S. 36

92nd Avenue Bridge over U.S. 36

The 92nd Avenue Bridge over U.S. 36 is perhaps Westminster’s most distinctive bridge structure, especially when viewed at night. The bridge features a “railroad style” steel double arch and was funded by the City of Westminster. Four pointed 30-foot tall obelisks or towers are located on both ends of the bridge. The center piers of the bridge have the same architectural elements as these towers except for the lighted obelisks. The bases of the towers are clad in native Colorado red flagstone with painted perforated metal on the top.

At night, the lights within the perforated metal cause the towers to emit a bright yellow glow. The retaining walls around the bridge are also lit at night. Landscaping complements the look of the bridge.

The bridge was originally built and funded by the city in 1983 and subsequently widened in 1999 when the decorative design features were added. This bridge was designed by J.R. Engineering and DHM Design.
