What parking will be available during the Bridge Detour?
The City of Glenwood Springs offers several free, all-day parking lot locations for downtown visitors. On the east side of Grand Avenue, there is the City/DDA parking garage, located at 9th and Cooper, and the Cooper Street public parking lot, located next to the Glenwood Fire Station on Cooper between 8th and 9th Streets. West of Grand Avenue, visitors can park for free in the lot at 7th and Colorado (behind the Italian Underground and Smoke Modern Barbeque), in the lot on the west end of 7th Street by the City’s old Water Treatment Plant, and in the lot to the west of City Hall. Additionally, after 6pm the parking lot at the Garfield County Courthouse and the Library/CMC parking structure become available to the public. During the detour, several locations have been identified for additional temporary parking lots, including at Youth Zone, on Centennial Drive, and at the former Waste Water Treatment Plant (additional parking spaces).
