Due to weather forecasts for the Aspen area, work on the Castle Creek Bridge has been suspended until next week.

The remaining work is rescheduled for Monday, Oct. 14 and Tuesday, Oct. 15. Crews are currently wrapping up the placement of new asphalt across the bridge. Remaining activities include concrete work and work at the bridge joints.

From 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day, westbound traffic on the Castle Creek Bridge will be detoured via Sixth Street to Power Plant Road. Eastbound traffic will continue to use Castle Creek Bridge with intermittent holds for outbound buses.

Traffic patterns will resume as normal for the remainder of this week.
