The Dotsero Bridge, which runs across the Colorado River in Dotsero, is free to anyone who can submit an adequate plan to relocate it.
The bridge was built in 1935 and spans a total of 150 feet. The Colorado Department of Transportation says the bridge could be easily restructured to be used as a pedestrian bridge.
The Dostero Bridge does not meet current safety standards, and it contains lead paint. Anyone who takes the bridge will need to remove this dangerous substance, especially if it will be used by pedestrians. Prolonged exposure to lead paint is toxic to humans.
If you have been exposed to lead paint, contact the Denver lead paint poisoning attorneys of Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., by calling (303) 423-1770.

According to the Office of the Attorney General in Maryland, a landlord managing properties in Baltimore has plead guilty to three misdemeanor violations of the Toxic Substances Control Act for failing to tell his tenants about potential hazards from lead paint in the buildings.
The landlord manages 175 apartments in Baltimore. Lead paints were banned in 1978 for the risk they pose to children. All of the apartments the landlord operates were built before 1978.
The landlord was also cited for performing lead paint abatement with children at the site and for not having a supervisor on site during the abatement.
A spokesperson with the Maryland Department of the Environment stated, “This is a very serious issue. While Maryland has made great strides to reduce childhood lead poisoning, last year we still had about 500 children who tested positive for lead poisoning … and lead poisoning is entirely preventable.”
