On September 17, 2014, 17 students enrolled in Construction Materials and Methods, along with several faculty and graduate students from the Construction Engineering and Management program, made a site visit to the Cherry Creek Bridge Deck Replacement Project. The project, at the corner of Cherry Creek and University, is slated for completion before Thanksgiving and is under the supervision of Kevin Rens, chair of civil engineering and director of construction engineering and management. Student observed many site conditions including the partial completion of two lanes of traffic, the debris catchment system, and epoxied rebar primed for the upcoming closure pour.
