Colorado highway officials will conduct special inspections of six bridges in the state at the urging of federal authorities after the collapse of a bridge in Minneapolis.

Colorado Department of Transportation spokeswoman Mindy Crane says the bridges were built with a structural technique similar to the Minneapolis bridge.

Two of the bridges are in the state highway system and four are on county roads or city streets.

She said all have been inspected regularly.

Crane says state officials will work with city and county officials to inspect their steel-deck truss bridges.

The steel-deck truss bridges in Colorado are:

-- On Colorado 120 over the Arkansas River, milepost 3.696 west of Penrose.

-- On U.S. 24 over the Arkansas River, milepost 213.434 near Buena Vista.

-- In Mineral County, on County Road Marsh Parkway.

-- In Pueblo County, on County Road 273.

-- In Pueblo, on Union Avenue.

-- In Red Cliff, on Water Street.
