Bridge placement over Clear Creek to close down stretch of U.S. 6 Monday


A bridge placement over Clear Creek in Jefferson County will shut down a stretch of U.S. 6 on Monday night for about 14 hours.
The bridge, a couple of mile west of the intersection of Colorado 93 and Colorado 58, will shut down at 6 p.m. so employees can place a pedestrian and bicyclist bridge alongside the Peaks to Plains Path phase of Jefferson County Open Area, in keeping with a Colorado Division of Transportation information launch.
The closure will shut down Clear Creek Canyon to motorized vehicle visitors from the Colorado 93-Colorado 58 interchange to Colorado 119. Drivers can take Interstate 70 to U.S. 6 as a detour.
The 163-foot lengthy bridge might be delivered in three sections for onsite meeting, CDOT stated, and cranes will elevate the bridge into place. U.S. 6 will reopen Tuesday morning.
The bridge placement is a part of a 65-mile mission to attach the Continental Divide at Loveland Cross to downtown Denver. The bridge span will even join hikers and bikers to greater than 80 miles of present trails to Denver and past.
