Soda Creek Bridge to be closed starting Monday

Soda Creek Bridge on Routt County Road 36 will be closed starting Monday for a major rehabilitation. The bridge is about one mile north of the intersection with C.R. 38.

Traffic will be carried on the bridge at all times, however, it will be restricted to one lane, with delays of up to 30 minutes, according to a memo from Routt County Road and Bridge. The one-lane condition will be in effect 24 hours a day for the duration of the project, which should be complete by Sept. 30.

Because the roadway under this restriction is narrow and has a tight turn, large trucks and towed vehicles likely will not be able to pass through.

While the bridge is limited to one lane, there will not be a flagman directing traffic, so drivers need to be responsible for driving safely, Routt County Commissioner Nancy Stahoviak said.
