Construction to begin on USFS bridge

Maintenance work to replace running planks on the Norrie bridge on National Forest Route 504 near Basalt is set to begin Monday.

Due to the lack of a suitable detour route, there will be no detour, and all travelers going over the bridge could experience 20-minute delays, the U.S. Forest Service warned in a press release. The work is expected to last until Oct. 7.

Signs notifying the public about the upcoming work have been in place on the bridge for more than a week.

Those with questions are instructed to call the Aspen-Sopris Ranger Station at 970-963-2266.
