27th Street Bridge, S. Grand Ave. intersection to be closed nightly on June 25 & 26 beginning at 8 p.m. for pedestrian bridge water line work

27th Street Bridge construction crews are scheduled to lower a new water line into the S. Grand Ave. intersection on Tuesday, June 25 and Wednesday, June 26. To compete this work, night closures in the area will be required. At approximately 8 p.m. each evening, the 27th Street Bridge and the intersection of S. Grand Ave. and 27th Street will close until the early hours of the morning. Water service interruptions are not anticipated.

During closures, 27th Street Bridge traffic will be detoured via 8th Street. S. Grand Avenue motorists will be redirected via Colorado Highway 82. Local business and residential access will remain open.

In preparation for the waterline work, crews are continuing current project operations. The dates of the night closures are contingent on the completion on several work items and weather. Any changes to the schedule will be announced via ConeZone.


Over the next two weeks, crews will be pouring several concrete elements for the pedestrian and traffic bridges. Whenever possible, crews will continue to keep lane closures to off-peak hours; however, interruptions to the afternoon travel peak are anticipated.


With schools out on summer vacation, crews will be allowed to keep lane closures up from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. daily. To maximize the progress, crews will access the site as early as sunup to begin daily operations and will continue work as late as 9 p.m.

Weekend work on Saturdays and Sundays and night work operations are anticipated to be more frequent. Scheduled night work will be announced via ConeZone updates.
