Castle Creek Bridge Repair Work
Detour for Down Valley Motorists
Delay for Up Valley Motorists
The City of Aspen will be making repairs on the Castle Creek Bridge Monday, October 7 through Friday, October 11 from approximately 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily. All westbound (down valley) traffic on the Castle Creek Bridge will be detoured via 6th St. to Power Plant Road. Eastbound (up valley) traffic will continue to use Castle Creek Bridge with intermittent holds for outbound buses.
During this time, crews will mill both lanes of the bridge deck and lay new asphalt. Please plan extra travel time as delays are anticipated. Follow flagger instructions and signage. Schedule is weather dependent and subject to change.
Bus and Parking Impacts
Roaring Fork Transportation Authority (RFTA) buses and school buses will be exempted from the detour and will be staged on Seventh Street. At intermittent times, traffic control will stop inbound traffic to allow for the buses to cross the bridge. Commuters are encouraged to ride RFTA as the bus has priority through the roundabout and will not have to use the Power Plant detour.
The Eighth Street bus stops will remain open during this work. The Sixth Street bus stop will be closed. Riders should use the Fourth Street bus stop. Street parking along Sixth Street will be temporarily closed during detour operations.
