Interstate-70 bridgework over Avon road to commence
Avon, CO—Crews from G.A. Western will begin repair work on the Interstate-70 bridge over Avon Road today. To prevent injuries or further damage, Avon Road will be closed intermittently starting on Wednesday; north and southbound lanes will be shifted to accommodate two-way traffic as much as possible. Repair work will continue through mid-November.
In May, am accident involving a semi-tractor trailer damaged the bridge and Avon Road when the tractor drove off the bridge causing a large explosion and large fire.
Residents and guests are asked to drive carefully and exercise patience; we apologize for any inconvenience. Please call Gary Padilla with the Town of Avon Public Works at 748-4118 if you have any questions concerning this work.
