Traffic Bridge North Abutment Pour
The first permanent structures of the new traffic bridge will start to take shape this week. The contractor will pour concrete for north abutment for the traffic bridge in the later part of the week. Stay tuned for images on our Facebook page.
Roadwork continues on I-70 Exit 114 (West Glenwood) Interchange
The Exit 114 interchange will be in a one-lane configuration. Expect construction activities on the westbound on-ramp and eastbound off-ramp. These one-lane closures are necessary for Exit 114 improvements preceding the 2017 traffic bridge detour.
Exit 116 (Main Glenwood to Aspen exit) will remain open.
On the Grand Avenue Bridge
Expect periodic one-lane closures on the Grand Avenue Bridge daily. This work is necessary to allow construction vehicles to access the 7th St. utility project.
Weekend construction activities are planned through the end of the month.
