CASTLE CREEK BRIDGE / HALLAM STREET IMPROVEMENT PROJECT

Construction and detours begin April 2, 2018.


In 2014, the Castle Creek Bridge and Hallam Street corridor were identified as a deficient link in Aspen’s bicycle and pedestrian network. This critical connection is along the busiest street in the city, yet there have not been any major upgrades in the area for nearly six decades.

The Castle Creek Bridge / Hallam Street Improvement Project seeks to improve safety and function in this area for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists with these key project components:

  • A protected 8-foot-wide concrete trail across the north side of Castle Creek Bridge to Seventh and Hallam Street
  • Upgraded bus shelters with ADA improvements
  • Enhanced roadway
  • A new, safer intersection and crosswalk location near Eighth Street

In addition to improving safety, these improvements: promote multi-modal connectivity, upgrade our public transportation infrastructure and enhance corridor aesthetics.
