Holy construction! For 50 years, I-70 has crossed through the east part of Denver on a bridge known as the "elevated deck". With that bridge aging, it was apparent it would need to be replaced. The Colorado Department of Transportation instead decided to drop I-70 in to a trench and knock down the elevated deck. A small piece of the elevated deck that hasn't been torn down is still visit to the right of the Purina factory. Meanwhile, UP 4014 stops across I-70 on new tracks and a new bridge at the north end of 36th Street Yard, waiting to back in.
