Bridge Lighting Project Road Closures
Update (11/16/16): All bridges have been painted.
In order to get the bridges ready for lighting as part of the District’s Bridge Lighting Project, the bridges over 59 are being painted. The painting crew will be doing one bridge at a time, and has already completed work on Hazard as of September 21st.
Painting work requires a total closure of the bridge for approximately one week, possibly longer in inclement weather. Rerouting signage will be posted to ease congestion.
Following the painting work, electrical work will begin, and the light fixtures on the bridges will be replaced. This will require bridge closures for approximately two weeks.
We appreciate the community’s patience as we move forward on this exciting project for Montrose. To learn more about the bridge lighting project, check out our Mobility Initiatives & Visual Improvements FAQ and our Visual Enhancements presentation [PDF].
