Nightly closures of Bryant Street at US 6 bridge from June 10-13

June 10, 2014 - Denver Metro Colorado/CDOT Region 1 - DENVER – Beginning the night of Tuesday, June 10, both directions of Bryant Street will be closed beneath US 6.

Overnight closures of Bryant Street will continue through Friday, June 13, for demolition of the US 6 bridge over the roadway as part of the Colorado Department of Transportation’s ongoing US 6 Bridges Design Build Project. Bryant Street will close each night at 7 p.m. and reopen each morning by 7 a.m.

“To accommodate bridge demolition, we cannot allow traffic under the bridge out of concern for commuter safety,” says Kevin Sullivan, CDOT Project Director. “Taking down the remaining portion of the US 6 bridge over Bryant Street further showcases the rapid progress this project is making. We have an aggressive schedule as work continues to heat up this summer.”

Local business and neighborhood access will be maintained during these nightly closures. During these overnight closures, motorists should use 5th Avenue, Federal Boulevard, 8th Avenue and Canosa Court to detour around the area.

The $98 million US 6 Bridges Design-Build Project will replace six obsolete bridges on US 6 between Knox Court and I-25, improve traffic movements in the I-25 and US 6 interchange and enhance driver safety by eliminating several traffic weave movements along US 6 between Federal Boulevard and I-25. Substantial project completion is planned for August 2015.
