LONGMONT — Nesting bald eagles are delaying the start of rebuilding a bridge near Longmont that was washed out in the September floods.

Boulder County Transportation director George Gerstle said Thursday it may now be August or September before the eggs are hatched and construction can begin.

The Longmont Times-Call reports (http://tinyurl.com/o3xbewo ) Boulder County is complying with the U.S. Endangered Species Act sets for such projects in order to ensure that the Federal Highway Administration will reimburse Boulder County for most or all of the estimated $4 million it's expected to cost to design and build a new bridge over the St. Vrain River.
