Road Construction Creates Delays

Construction on the Riverside Parkway continues to impact drivers with detours.

Beginning Monday, several Grand Valley roads will have closures. Traffic on the 5th Street Bridge, over the Colorado River, will shift to the outside lanes only in both directions. The Riverside Parkway Project will fill in the gap between the bridges over the river to add lane width.
Speed on the bridge will be reduced to 30 miles per hour. This work will continue for the next year.

Also starting on Monday, the final landscaping work will close the Las Colonias section of the Riverside Parkway, between Ninth Street and Winters Avenue. This closure will last for three weeks.

The final road closure is at 25 Road and Independent Avenue.
On Monday, SEMA Construction will be setting bridge girders in this area. Expect delays up to 30 minutes on Independent Avenue, on Monday only.
