West Midland to be CLOSED
over night on Oct. 13

The City is anticipating traffic impacts to west Midland on Oct.13-14 as crews place a 120-foot long pedestrian bridge crossing of Midland Avenue, just south of the railroad bridge. The bridge is part of construction of the West Midland Multi-Use Path intended to provide a safe route for pedestrians and cyclists from the Glenwood Springs Middle School to downtown Glenwood to use during the Grand Avenue Bridge detour in 2017 and beyond. 

  • A one-lane configuration on west Midland will be set up starting at 6 p.m. on Thursday, October 13 to allow for crane set up.
  • Full closure of the road from Devereux Road to Wulfsohn Road will begin at 8 p.m. and last until 6 a.m. the following day, Friday, October 14.
  • During this time, motorists will need to use Devereux Road, 27th Street, I-70 or U.S. Highway 6. (Motorists using Midland Ave. from 8th Street to 27th Street are asked to drive carefully. The speed limit is 25mph along Midland Ave. from 8th Street to 27th Street.)
