Summary

Significance: Erected using steel components rolled by the Lackawanna Steel Company, the Hotchkiss Bridge was a locally important crossing of the North Fork River. Built by Colorado's most prolific bridge contractor, the Pueblo Bridge Company, it is one of four pin-connected vehicular Camelback through trusses remaining in the state and, as such, has some technological significance.
