Black Squirrel Creek Bridge

The Black Squirrel Creek Bridge is a Parker truss bridge in eastern El Paso County, Colorado. The bridge carries U.S. Route 24 across Black Squirrel Creek at the highway's milepost 327.33.

History

During World War II, German prisoners of war allowed to do construction, farm and logging work in the area were housed in the bridge's foundation.

The bridge became too expensive to maintain in the 2000s and will be demolished and replaced with a new bridge.
