Dan McNichol, an author and freelance writer who is acting as a correspondent this summer for Engineering News-Record magazine, stands beside his 1949 Hudson,m which he bought for $3,500 on eBay. He was in Glenwood Springs on Wednesday morning on a cross-country trip with ENR editor Aileen Cho meant to examine and draw attention to the nation's crumbling infrastructure â which he says is roughly the age of the Hudson. The tour is called Low and Slow Across Americaâs Infrastructure. McNichol and Cho met with Colorado Department of Transportation engineer Joe Elsen and local business people to learn about the Grand Avenue bridge.
