CU Denver students help flood-damaged bridges

Along Cherry Creek, there are 22 foot bridges, many of which were damaged by high waters from last week’s flood. CU Denver engineering students are helping the city inspect the bridges for any structural damage, by doing hands-on exams. “We don’t always get a chance to get out of the classroom,” said Eric Petrie, a junior. “This allows us to get real experience working with professionals and it looks good on our resumes when it comes time to looking for a job.”
