Colorado DOT selected an Acrow temporary bridge in the I corridor between Denver and Fort Collins as an efficient and economical alternative solution. The area near this intersection continues to experience economic development, and it is expected that the improvements will provide better access to existing business and spur future development. Acrow offered a two-lane rental bridge, feet-long by feet-wide, to CDOT as an alternative construction option to building a concrete detour lane that would need to be demolished later in the project. The lower-cost materials, reduced labor needed and the use of lightweight installation equipment offered an economical alternative to more traditional structures. Traffic was diverted to the temporary bridge in January as the existing northbound bridge was demolished and rebuilt. By August , the temporary bridge will be used for southbound traffic while the existing span there is demolished and rebuilt.

NREL researchers who conducted the study also gained a deeper understanding of how wind plant construction impacts the economies of rural communities, where wind plant construction often occurs. By using modeled and empirical data, the NREL team developed an informative picture of the economic impacts of wind energy development in rural Colorado—results that could apply to other states as well. Highlighting the importance of domestic manufacturing, the study focused on the economic impact of jobs, earnings, gross domestic product GDP , and gross economic output during the relatively short construction phase and the longer-term operation and maintenance phase. Using an in-state manufacturer also decreased transportation time and costs, as wind turbine components were delivered to the installation site by truck rather than rail. Wind turbine components, such as the blades, towers, and nacelles, were manufactured and assembled in Colorado using several in-state suppliers for subcomponents. Some parts and materials, however, were sourced from out of state. For example, nacelles were assembled in Colorado, but the subcomponents within the nacelles such as generators and electronics were manufactured elsewhere.

Colorado legalized recreational marijuana in and became the first state in modern times to oversee legal sales when shops opened at start of With four years in the books, what do we know about the first experiment with legal cannabis in modern America? Looking at public health data, one can barely find any indication that the public health sphere has changed in recent years.
You and your three mid-twenties Denver buddies arrive to the one room primitive cabin after a long and tiring climb, ecstatic to find the cabin at the end of a long and very cold day. After a quick snort from the flask passed around, and putting your sleeping bags in the rustic bunks, Pete breaks out his backpacking stove and tries to start it. Nothing — he curses an empty gas cartridge and throws another one on the stove and lights it. You and your buddies grab your sleeping bags and beat out the flames around the stove. You see Pete on the floor looking dazed, but amazingly he seems okay, at least at first glance.
