Wouldn't you have loved some trestle wood?

Next with Kyle Clark. 9NEWS @ 6. 9/20/2016

The remnants of an old bridge unearthed by RTD are long gone.

While constructing the new N-line near Northglenn, crews discovered a train trestle dating back to the early 1900s. It had been underground for more than 60 years.

Historians said it did not have historical value, and the bridge was demolished. 

People reached out to Next after seeing our story. The bridge stretched over 200 feet, and viewers have been curious about what happened to all of that wood.

Unfortunately, it's not up for grabs.

The pieces were smashed during demolition. One of the team members told Next the wood was weak and rotten. Mostly, all that remained were wood shards coated with dirt, RTD said.

Like your standard household trash, the wood was considered waste. RTD disposed of it at a landfill.
