The Grand Avenue Bridge will close on Monday, Aug. 14 for approximately 95 days. Traffic delays are contingent on a 35% traffic reduction in vehicle trips along the detour route or approximately 700 vehicles per hour. If a 35% reduction in vehicle trips through the detour route is not achieved during peak hours, motorists can anticipate up to a 1-hour delay. Traffic impacts and delays will span from the I-70 Exit 114 interchange to 27th Street in Glenwood Springs.
Best Case = 35% reduction in traffic = Approx. 15 minute delay
Worst Case = No reduction in traffic = Approx. 1 hour delay
