Full Closure of Bryant Street Under US 6 Bridge Tonight

February 24, 2014 - Denver Metro Colorado/CDOT Region 1 - DENVER- The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will be implementing a full closure of Bryant Street beneath the US 6 bridge tonight, Feb. 24, at 6 p.m.

The roadway is scheduled to reopen at 6 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 25. This closure is necessary in order to maintain public safety as crews remove a portion of the bridge as part of the US 6 Bridges Design Build Project. Motorists should use 5th Avenue, Federal Boulevard, 8th Avenue and Canosa Court to detour around the area.

All construction activities are weather-dependent and subject to change. For updated project information, visit http://www.coloradodot.info/projects/US6Bridges, call 720-881-5540 or email [email protected]

The US 6 Bridges Design-Build Project involves improvements along 6th Avenue from approximately Knox Court on the west through the BNSF railroad track bridge just east of I-25.  The project, which was part of the I-25 Valley Highway FEIS completed in 2006, includes building new bridges over Bryant Street, the South Platte River, BNSF railroad tracks, I-25, and over US 6 at Federal Boulevard and Knox Court, as well as improvements to Barnum Parks and a realigned off-ramp from northbound I-25 to westbound US 6. Substantial project completion is planned for August 2015.
