Cyclists and peds use the detour during bridge work

Thank you, Aspen pedestrians and cyclists, for reducing vehicle traffic by not driving in and around town. I want to remind those of you who use the Castle Creek Bridge in your commute or recreationally that the bridge will be completely closed to pedestrians and cyclists during phase III of the Castle Creek Bridge / Hallam Street Improvement project, which resumes Tuesday.

There is a detour in place via Marolt Open Space Trail. Do not cross into the construction site, as this is a restricted area.

With heavy equipment and construction activities, it just isn’t safe and you’ll be interfering with construction operations. The workers that are on-site are trained to be there. An unexpected and unauthorized pedestrian or cyclist entering the site could mean serious injury or worse. Please use the detour to keep yourself and the crews safe.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Terry Leitch

Sergeant, Aspen Police Department
