GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - For the next three months drivers can expect a detour in the area north of St. Mary's Hospital on 26 ½ Road as workers replace a bridge.

From Jan. 11 until April 16 the bridge at 26 ½ and F ½ road will be closed. Northbound traffic will be detoured to Horizon Drive and 12th Street. Southbound traffic will be directed west to 26 Road.

Officials say the current bridge has been identified as structurally deficient and has a maximum weight limit so a new wider, more stable bridge will be built in its place.
