Soda Creek Bridge closed to one lane 24-hours a day

Soda Creek Bridge on Routt County Road 36 will be closed for a major rehabilitation. The bridge is about one mile north of 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.
