Nighttime Lane Closures

Crews will close lanes at night this week in preparation for the final polyconcrete overlay on the Grand Avenue bridge. Expect heavy construction noise.

  • 6 p.m.: Crews will close one southbound lane.
  • 9 p.m.: Crews will close one northbound lane.

Overlay Installation Begins May 31

Starting Thursday, May 31 and continuing weekday evenings through June 8, crews will start intalling the polyconcrete overlay, which will have a distinct, chemical smell (this is normal).

Benefits: This will help protect the bridge and extends its lifespan.

Starting the week of June 11, crews will begin striping. Work is weather dependent.

Downtown Meeting

Join the City of Glenwood Springs at 9 a.m. Thursday, May 24, in the City Hall Council Chambers for an update regarding plans for the bridge's surrounding area. Call 970-384-6441 for more information.

The Grand Avenue Bridge is open!
Expect periodic, daily lane closures on the GAB during off-peak hours.

The Grand Avenue Bridge (GAB) project is the largest infrastructure project on the Western Slope in 25 years. Now in the final phase of this five-phase project, crews are working toward completing this historic project.

Use this site to learn more about our work to improve one of 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.
