Project crews will move barriers and pave the temporary 4-foot-wide pedestrian/bike path of the existing Maroon Creek Bridge between 4 and 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept.15. Motorists will experience single-lane, alternating traffic and travel delays, which will vary depending on travel time. The purpose of this paving is to even out asphalt between the pedestrian portion and the travel lanes. Early in 2008, when pedestrian and bike traffic is moved onto the new bridge, concrete barriers on the old bridge will be removed and the vehicular travel lanes will regain their previous wider alignment.

A benefit concert for Andy Wagner, 20, of Glenwood springs, who was in a motorcycle accident two months ago, will be held at 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 7, at Yampah Mountain High School in Glenwood Springs.
