Nightly closures along state Route 128 began April 8 and are expected to continue through May 3, according to Griffin Lloyd, project manager for the Lions Park Transit Hub and Colorado River Pathway construction project. The road will be closed from U.S. 191 to just past Negro Bill Canyon Sunday through Thursday nights from 11:30 p.m. to 5:30 a.m.
The night time closures will be in place to allow for a crane to set bridge girders. Bent caps will be set during the daytime and only one traffic lane will be open. Emergencies that occur during the full nighttime closures will be handled through the Grand County Sheriff’s Office dispatch.
