Colfax reopens at CU Anschutz after truck crashes into pedestrian bridge

Colfax Avenue reopened Monday evening after the crash earlier in the morning.

AURORA, Colo. — Colfax Avenue reopened in the area of the CU Anschutz Medical Campus after a truck crashed into a pedestrian bridge.

Aurora Police Department said that a large truck crashed into the bridge on the south side of the campus around 9:15 a.m.

The driver suffered minor injuries and was cited for operating an unsafe vehicle, according to police. No other injuries were reported.

Police said Colfax was shut down between Ursula and Wheeling streets. 

At 10:40 a.m., police said all lanes of Colfax would likely remain closed for hours while a city engineer and other experts assess the damage.

Police said at 3:16 p.m. that westbound lanes on Colfax were back open, but eastbound lanes remained closed due to ongoing inspections and forthcoming repairs.

At 5:15, Police said eastbound lanes on Colfax had also reopened.
