Dick Fosbury Colorado Gulch Bridge

The late Blaine County Commissioner Dick Fosbury worked closely with Land Trust staff for years to plan how we could both rehabilitate river and side channel habitat at Colorado Gulch and replace the Colorado Gulch bridge that washed out during the 2017 floods.  The restoration work is done, and now the partnership continues as Blaine County is obtaining construction bids for the bridge.  We are accepting donations to help fund the bridge, with Dick’s family inviting his friends and family all over the world to help make this a reality.  The County is also taking suggestions for clever ways to name the bridge that capture Dick’s spirit and dedication to our community.  Please email naming suggestions to
