The north sidewalk of the Broadway Bridge will be closed beginning Monday, January 25 at 7 a.m. to allow a contractor to remove and paint the handrails along the sidewalk.  The sidewalk will reopen in mid-March.

The bridge’s south sidewalk will remain open while the north sidewalk is closed.  Signs and traffic control devices will direct sidewalk users to crosswalks at each end of the bridge where the public can access the open sidewalk.  Sidewalk users should be alert for two-way traffic on the south sidewalk during the closure. The Steel Bridge and Eastbank Esplanade are nearby alternate routes during the closure.

When the handrail on the north sidewalk has been repainted and reinstalled, the north sidewalk will reopen and the south sidewalk will close for several weeks while its handrail is removed and repainted.

The handrail work is part of the bridge painting project that is scheduled to be completed in April.  For information, visit www.multco.us/bridges.
