GAB Detour Map

Bridge Closure Approaches

Grand Avenue Bridge Closes August 14th

The Grand Avenue Bridge (GAB) project is the largest infrastructure project on the Western Slope in 25 years. Now in phase three of this five-phase project, crews are working to replace the more than five-decade-old traffic bridge in Glenwood Springs. On Monday, August 14th, phase 4 begins and the bridge will be closed for approximately 95 calendar days.

Traveling through Glenwood is expected to be significantly impacted as all traffic will be diverted to West Glenwood with one lane traffic detours.

  • Avoid peak commuter times, if possible: 6:30am - 9:00am & 3:30pm - 6:30pm
  • Leave early. Plan on 15 min. to 1 hour delays. 
  • Be part of the solution and reduce traffic. Ride the bus, carpool, and drive less. 
  • Know the detour. Find a detour map online.
  • Stay up to date. Details, notices, and alerts will be posted on the project website.

Be Bear Aware

Protect Yourself and Bears

A dry start to the summer has resulted in a shortage of natural food sources for bears, leaving them to venture into unusual places in search for food. According to the Snowmass Village Police Department, this year has seen an increase in bear activity, and the Animal Service division has been responding to approximately 2 to 3 calls each day for bear-related incidents. Animal Services does their best to keep both the community and bears safe by reducing human-bear conflicts, but they need your help.

Snowmass Village is in prime black bear habitat, and we rely on the community to keep human-bear conflicts to a minimum. You can help by securing all food sources, including garbage, bird feeders, and food inside your home or vehicle. Here are a few resources that will help you get started in Bear Awareness:To report a bear sighting, call Snowmass Village Animal Services at 923-5330. The information you provide is used to track their movement and behavior, and it will help keep them alive. Trapping, relocating, or euthanasia is only used as a last resort when a safety concern exists, as determined by the Colorado Division of Parks and Wildlife.
