DENVER (CBS4) – Both directions of Bryant Street will close Monday evening at US 6 for bridge work.
According to the Colorado Department of Transportation, crews will close the road beginning at 7 p.m. each night to set girders for the new US 6 bridge over Bryant Street until the work is complete. The road will reopen at 7 a.m. each day.
