Overnight closures of Edwards access road start April 25

April 18, 2019 - Construction crews will erect girders for the Eagle River Bridge


EDWARDS—From 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Sunday, April 21 through Wednesday, April 24, Edwards Access Road will be closed north of the Eagle River Bridge as crews install a water main across the road.

Then, on Thursday, April 25, crews will again close Edwards Access Road during the same hours as they place girders for the new Eagle River Bridge.

  • During these closures, businesses and residences will remain accessible.
  • Detour: Both directions of traffic on Edwards Access Road will use Miller Ranch Road and US 6 as the detour.
  • Expect delays through the project area.

Transport Truck Detour

Due to the length of the bridge girders, which will be delivered to the Eagle River bridge site around 4 a.m, transport trucks must exit I-70 at the Wolcott interchange (US 6 and CO 131) and travel east on US 6. All travelers should plan for 15-minute delays.

This operation is a major step in the construction of the new, widened bridge over Eagle River, which aims to improve safety along the busy arterial road. Along with widening the road to two lanes in each direction, the new bridge will accommodate dedicated bike lanes and a detached, grade-separated pedestrian bridge.
