Bridge at Mayhem Gulch Installed

The bridge installation at Mayhem Gulch in Clear Creek Canyon yesterday was successful. The two halves of the bridge were first bolted together, then the two overlook platforms were bolted on, and finally the entire structure was lifted over Clear Creek and into place.

The bridge is not complete and does not have concrete decking. It cannot be walked upon and the Peaks to Plains Trail remains an active construction site.

The next bridge goes in tonight, and the third on Wednesday night. US 6 will be closed to allow for preparation for these two remaining bridges to be staged on the highway. The closures will occur Tuesday March 15 and Wednesday March 16 from 8 P.M. to 3 A.M. See more details about the closures and recommended detour.
