Castle Creek Bridge (SH 82) Minor Repairs Underway for Next Two Days

June 11, 2013 - Northwestern Colorado/CDOT Region 3 - ASPEN – Colorado Department of Transportation maintenance crews are making some repairs to the Castle Creek Bridge on SH 82 tomorrow and likely Wednesday.

Specifically, crews will repair a “bladder,” or rubber seal at the bridge’s joint on the west-end (or down-valley side) bridge abutment (where bridge meets land). The damaged bladder is causing some water leakage onto the path below the bridge.

During the minor repair project, up-valley (into Aspen) traffic will be reduced to a single lane from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., while down-valley traffic will be detoured onto Power Plant Road.
