The Grand Avenue Bridge (GAB) project is the largest infrastructure project on the Western Slope in 25 years. Now in phase 2 of this five-phase project, crews are working to replace the more than five-decade-old traffic bridge in Glenwood Springs.

Use this site to learn more about our work to improve one of only two routes for motorists to cross the Colorado River and Interstate 70, and its construction of a new pedestrian bridge along the GAB. You can also follow us on Facebook.

Week Look Ahead

Eighth Street Bridge Opens, Some Work Still Ahead

The Eighth Street bridge is open. Commuters will be able to use the route from Seventh Street to Midland Avenue.

Motorists can expect alternating traffic on Thursday, Oct. 20 through Friday, Oct. 21, while crews complete bridge guardrail installation.

Construction activity in the area will continue, as the remodel to the Eighth Street and Midland Avenue intersection receives final touches and crews move east. Pedestrian access will continue to be maintained.
