Work is progressing on replacement of the county's Escalante Bridge. A temporary bridge across Escalante Creek has been installed in the foreground. The old one-lane bridge is being lifted onto a trailer for transport to a point further upstream where it was placed back into service. When completed, the new span will be two lanes wide and will serve as primary access to Escalante Canyon and the national conservation area. The photo was taken on Feb. 20.
Delta Volunteer Fire Department (DVFD) will be holding its annual fireworks show at Confluence Park on Wednesday, July 4, having received approval from Delta City Council at the council's June 5 meeting.
The DVFD has 28 volunteers and expects to have eight to 10 firefighters from Cedaredge join them this year.
