Concrete posts on Academy no longer used

HIGHWAY POSTS: I’ve always wondered, what are those two concrete posts on each side of South Academy between Drennen and Bradley exit? It looks like a bridge was going to be built over the road, and then scrapped.

Colorado Department of Transportation engineers say the piers apparently date back to when South Academy Boulevard bisected a gravel pit and possibly there was a conveyor belt from one side to the other, according to CDOT spokesman Bob Wilson. However, several readers say it was a water or sewer pipe.
