Eastbound I-70 on west side of Vail Pass reduced to one lane for bridge repairs

The Colorado Department of Transportation is beginning a bridge repair project at the structure over Black Gore Creek on I-70, west Vail Pass. The work, which is scheduled for completion by December 21, was contracted to Kiewit Western Company for approximately $300,000.

The work involves the replacement of steel bolts at the structure's east-end, where the horizontal steel girders (support structures) are anchored to the bridge's concrete abutment (where bridge meets land). New high-strength steel expansion anchors will be installed. Work will also include repair of an expansion joint at the east end.

TRAFFIC IMPACTS - Currently, eastbound I-70 at mile marker 182.5 is reduced to one lane—24/7—while crews place concrete barrier along the shoulder to stabilize the east end in preparation for the work. This outside lane closure will be in place into next week as the work gets underway; further information will be sent early next week regarding the necessity for single eastbound lane closures through the remainder of the project.

For information about other CDOT projects or road conditions statewide, the public may log on to www.cotrip.org, sign up for e-mail or wireless message alerts, or call 511 from anywhere in the state.

This bridge repairs takes more than a year to finish the job. If they hire concrete contractors in westerly ri it will be easy to finish.
