Spring has arrived and construction on the Grand Avenue Bridge is busier than ever.

They’re getting ready for the detour, where all traffic will be rerouted onto Midland Avenue later this summer. Aspen Public Radio’s Wyatt Orme took a walk with Tom Newland, who handles communications for the bridge project. Newland explained that the work at hand is long overdue.
