One eastbound travel lane will remain in place as the southern side of the bridge is rebuilt. Travelers should expect delays and may consider alternate routes. Please use caution when passing through the construction area and follow traffic signs.
The new bridge will expand from four to six travel lanes to accommodate future growth along one of the city’s main east/west mobility corridors. Signalizing the intersection at Space Center Drive is part of the project and will improve access to surrounding neighborhoods. Construction will also accommodate the future Sand Creek Regional Trail under the Platte Avenue Bridge.
Funding to replace the Platte Avenue Bridges totals approximately $14 million, funded in part by the Pikes Peak Rural Transportation Authority and a federal grant.
