Colorado River Rock Bridge

An artful pedestrian bridge straddles Cucumber Creek just before the small tributary meets up with the Blue River, commissioned as part of an effort called “bridge as art” to provide easy passage for kayakers enjoying Breckenridge’s 1800-foot whitewater park. Hewn of wood and steel, the bridge by Steuart Bremner bears an inverted arch of river stones at its apex, each representing a tributary of the Colorado River—among them the Blue. An intensely place-based piece, it reminds us of our river’s role in the West’s grand watershed, and thus how we, too, are linked.

Commissioned by the Town of Breckenridge
