The City of Aspen invites the community to tune-in to a Facebook Live event for the Castle Creek Bridge / Hallam Street Improvement Project this Thursday, March 15 at 12 p.m. via the City of Aspen’s Facebook page. Project information including detour routes, schedules and impacts will be presented. Participants will be able to ask questions live in the comments section.
“This is an exciting opportunity for our project team to connect with the community in a new way,” said public information manager, Bryana Starbuck. “We want to make sure to reach as many people as possible, so there are no surprises on April 2. This Thursday, people can tune in to the City of Aspen’s Facebook page for critical project information and to ask questions. It’s essentially an open house from the comfort of your computer or phone.”
Project construction is set to begin on Monday, April 2 with traffic and pedestrian detours. One lane is needed on both the bridge and Hallam Street for construction access and work. Significant traffic delays are anticipated during peak travel times for both inbound and outbound traffic.
