"The Grand Avenue Bridge (GAB) project is a 30-month construction project building a new GAB and pedestrian bridge. The GAB and the pedestrian bridge serve as an important connection between downtown Glenwood Springs, the historic Glenwood Hot Springs district, and Interstate 70. This project will improve multimodal connectivity and address the functional and structural deficiencies of the bridge, including emergency service response and reliability as a critical transportation route.
The GAB project begins in January 2016. The estimated completion date is May 2018. The GAB will be constructed in five phases. The following is an overview of Phase I construction activity, traffic impacts, and project activities. PHASE 1 OVERVIEW The contractor will begin work on the southern causeway on the south riverbank to better access the bridge piers. Contractor will begin installation of utilities on 7th St. and Wing Street. Installation of temporary walkway on the current traffic bridge will begin as well as caisson and substructure work. Construction of a cul-de-sac at the west end of the Glenwood Hot Springs parking lot will be built to provide a turnaround for shuttle parking."
