A truck carrying a crane crashed into the bridge Sunday, causing significant damage.

The right lane and shoulder of I-70 East have been closed since.

The closure begins at 5 a.m. and ends at 9 p.m. both Wednesday and Thursday.
 
CDOT says it has to do the work in the daytime, partly because of safety and that's when certain materials are available.
 
Crews will route one lane of traffic using the shoulder.
 
The department strongly suggests finding an alternate route because there will be delays.
