Construction Update - Where and why is dirt being moved in the Roaring Fork valley?

27th Bridge in Glenwood Springs


After nearly over a year, the reconstruction of the 27th street bridge is nearly over.  The new bridge replaces one of the oldest in the state and provides a wider roadway, smoother traffic flow through the intersection with south Grand Avenue via a new roundabout and a new pedestrian bridge.  The construction has been tough for the drivers of the estimated 14,000 vehicles that cross the bridge a day with a total of 19 days of complete closure and many delays due to weather and other factors but the end is in sight and traffic is flowing.  On Wednesday, Feb. 12 at 2 p.m., the city will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony, this time with the new 27th Street Bridge as the backdrop
