Emergency bridge repair causes US 6 delays

9NEWS at 6 a.m. 09/14/16.

GOLDEN - All but one lane of US 6 closed in both directions near Interstate 70 early Wednesday morning due to emergency bridge repair after a truck carrying a crane hit the overpass. 

The Colorado Department of Transportation said earlier there will be multiple lane closures in the area Wednesday, with only the right shoulder of US 6 open from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m.

This comes after a truck hit the I-70 overpass above US 6 Sunday night, prompting a full closure of the highway for multiple hours.

CDOT says the far right lane and shoulder area of I-70 have the most damage in wake of the crash -- something that led to lane closures all week. 

Depending on how Wednesday’s work goes, a similar closure is possible on Thursday.

CDOT says drivers should take I-70 or Colfax Avenue as alternate routes during the repair.
