Oprah's Bridge

Thursday • October 23, 2014

At 180 feet, the 3 span steel girder bridge, with interior steel clad concrete piers 60 feet apart, spans wetlands and the Marmot ski run, providing access to a unequaled 60 acres of timber, with over a 1/4 of a mile of ski run frontage, and classic San Juan Views.

Oprah's access is no easy feat, but when completed she will have extraordinary privacy and a stunning home site. Although no plans have been seen yet, rumor has it that JLF + Associates from Bozeman, Montana, are the chosen architects; Fortenberry & Ricks Construction Company of Telluride are building the impressive bridge and certainly appear to have been hand picked for the entire project. Fortenberry & Ricks, Telluride top custom construction company, is just completing a spectacular home for Hewlett-Packard's CEO, Meg Whitman and her family.
