Bridges don’t parallel the city’s evolution

In 2007, Colorado Springs made an interesting trade with the Colorado Department of Transportation. CDOT took over control of Powers Boulevard, and the city assumed responsibility for Nevada Avenue, once the principal state-supervised highway through the city.
