Community Walk Down the New Grand Avenue Bridge

Grand Ave. Bridge is now OPEN!

Congratulations on officially surviving the detour!
The new Grand Avenue Bridge is now open to vehicle traffic. Thank you for your patience and resilience.

It truly was a team effort, and one that has made Glenwood Springs an even better place to live than it was before the project began.
Please be aware of changing traffic patterns on the new bridge and throughout the former detour route over the next few days.
