Castle Creek Bridge / Hallam Street Improvement Project Outreach Begins
Construction Begins April 2, 2018

The City of Aspen invites the Aspen and Roaring Fork Valley communities to visit the updated project website for the Castle Creek Bridge / Hallam Street Improvement Project. Project construction is set to begin on Monday, April 2 with traffic and pedestrian detours. One lane is needed on both the bridge and Hallam Street for construction access and work. Sign up for project news and updates by visiting the project website, www.castlecreekbridge.com or by contacting the project information team via call, text or email.

“Our team is working towards finalizing project details and measures to minimize impacts to residents and commuters,” said Pete Rice, senior project manager. “There will be delays, but we’re aiming to reach as many people as possible to increase project awareness, explain logistics and encourage self-preparation.”

About the Project
The Castle Creek Bridge / Hallam Street Improvement Project seeks to improve safety and function along the busiest street in Aspen, CO. Key project components include a protected 8-foot-wide concrete trail across the north side of Castle Creek Bridge to 7th and Hallam streets, upgraded bus shelters, enhanced roadway and a new intersection and crosswalk location near 8th Street. These improvements will improve safety for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists, promote multi-modal connectivity, upgrade our public transportation infrastructure and enhance corridor aesthetics.
