Bridge work over South Boulder Creek

by Melissa Brasfield | January 16, 2023 | News

Beginning Monday, Jan. 16, Denver Water’s contractor, Kiewit-Barnard, will begin work to reinforce the bridge over South Boulder Creek on Gross Dam Road. This work will take approximately one week, although this timeframe is weather-dependent.

Although the road is safe for traffic as it is currently being used, Kiewit-Barnard will soon begin hauling operations that require the use of large, loaded haul trucks. This project will ensure these vehicles, and other traffic using the road, are able to continue safely using the bridge.

Work will be done at night to minimize disruptions for those who use Gross Dam Road and will require a full closure of the road nightly from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. During the day, flaggers will be in place to direct traffic through the work zone, which will be reduced to one lane for safety. As with all projects impacting roadways, we will ensure access for all emergency vehicles and continue to coordinate with local public safety personnel.

If you have questions about this work or general project question, please email us at or call 303-628-6348. For more information about the project, visit
