US 6 Bridge over Garrison Street Reconstruction Begins

February 11, 2015 - Metro Denver Colorado/CDOT Region 1 - In mid-January 2015, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and Hamon Contractors began the reconstruction of the US 6 bridge over Garrison Street, with the existing bridge being removed in phases as the new bridge is constructed in tandem.

 The $15 million project also constructs retaining walls, drainage improvements and corrects the vertical curves approaching the bridge to increase visibility. The project is scheduled to be complete in fall 2015.

“We’ve implemented innovative techniques in order to deliver the project on an accelerated time line,” said Tony DeVito, CDOT Region Transportation Director. “This project will ultimately replace a deteriorating bridge structure and increase safety on the corridor by increasing driver sight distances and increasing shoulder width on US 6.”

Typical working hours are Mondays through Saturdays, 7:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Throughout construction, three travel lanes on US 6 and two travel lanes on Garrison Street in each direction will remain open during peak travel times. Motorists can expect a series of traffic shifts on US 6 during each phase of bridge construction and full overnight closures of Garrison Street for bridge demolition and girder setting. Pedestrian and bicycle access will be maintained, but special attention should be paid to the flaggers within the work zone. The eastbound and westbound US 6 exits to Garrison Street will remain open with easy access to local businesses throughout the project.
