Resurfacing of Grand Avenue ped bridge to begin Monday, commencing 2-month closure

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado – Work is scheduled to begin next Monday on the Grand Avenue Pedestrian Bridge in Glenwood Springs. The bridge will be closed for pedestrian traffic from Monday, April 5, to May 28.

A bus shuttle service will be provided by the city for pedestrians wanting to cross the river.

The bus route will have a stop on the west side of Grand Avenue at Ninth Street. From there the bus will travel north over the Grand Avenue Bridge to a stop near the Hotel Colorado on Sixth Street and Pine Street. The shuttle will then loop around the Glenwood Hot Springs Pool on North River Road back to Sixth Street, ultimately ending up southbound on the Grand Avenue Bridge.

After the bridge, the shuttle will turn around at 10th Street and drop off and pick up passengers at the Ninth Street stop again.

The shuttle service will run for four hours per day, during evening hours, from 6-10 p.m.

Pedestrians wanting to cross on foot will have to use the pedestrian bridge at Two Rivers Park during daylight hours.

The project will consist of removing the entire existing concrete deck, and replacing it with pre-cast concrete sections, which will include new electrical conduit and pull boxes for the bridge lighting system.

The total cost for the project is reportedly $631,000.
