The Colorado Department of Transportation will close Highway 115 at the Arkansas River Bridge near Florence for about two-and-a-half weeks.
Beginning on Monday, June 13, the bridge will be closed to through traffic between U.S. 50 near Penrose and State Highway 120. The bridge, located about two miles east of Florence, will be closed for waterproofing and to allow the expansion joints to be replaced. It is scheduled to remain closed until Thursday, June 30.
While the closure is in place, through traffic will need to use State Highway 67 as the detour route.
