Dille Diversion Dam Bridge Placement - In September 2013, the Big Thompson River flooded along with most of the South Platte River Basin in northern Colorado. During the flood, the Big Thompson Canyon was severely impacted, including Reclamation’s Dille Diversion Dam near the mouth of the canyon. Colorado Department of Transportation has since rebuilt the highway. Reclamation has spent the past year clearing the diversion dam of debris, running a temporary source of power to the facility, and designing repairs. Before any of the repair work can begin, the new bridge had to be installed. That milestone was accomplished on October 22, 2014. The new bridge, which provides access across the 90-foot long crest of the dam, weighs approximately 9500 lbs and replaces the temporary bridge that will soon be removed.
