GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - A large portion of a bridge in downtown Glenwood Springs collapsed and sent dust flying as crews worked on its demolition.

The Post Independent reports https://goo.gl/CuSgm5 no one was injured when steel girders underpinning the old Grand Avenue bridge fell across some railroad tracks Tuesday evening.

Police Chief Terry Wilson says a pier collapsed as crews were using equipment to pull a beam, causing workers to scramble.

The bridge, which was built in 1953, is being torn down to make way for a new, wider and longer structure that already is partially built. That project is expected to cost $126 million.
