Starting Wednesday, U.S. 36 will be closed in both directions from Wadsworth Parkway to Church Ranch Boulevard from 10 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. weekdays and 10 7 a.m. weekends. Crews are installing  girders on the Uptown Avenue (Olde Wadsworth) bridge.

Work is expected to continue through May 15, weather permitting.

Though a detour will be in place, drivers are encouraged to avoid the area and to expect delays. All affected RTD bus stops will be temporarily relocated. Signs will be posted to direct riders to the temporary bus stops.
