WESTMINSTER - The Sheridan Bridge over US 36 in Westminster will be removed on Monday.

Drivers are to expect delays this entire week.

Everyday, 100,000 cars travel through the work areas along U.S. 36, according to the Colorado Department of Transportation.

After the existing bridge is demolished, crews will begin building the remaining portion of the Sheridan Boulevard Bridge. The final Sheridan Boulevard Bridge will have an additional northbound lane and double left turn lanes in each direction.

It's all part of a major project that will last for the next two weeks.

Work itself has gone on about a year. The bridge should be finished by the fall. Construction on the U.S. 36 Express Lanes Project still has at least another two years to go.

The $400 million project will build an express lane in each direction. The lanes will accommodate HOV, bus rapid transit and tolled single occupancy vehicles. In addition, the project will replace several bridges and build a commuter bikeway.

The best way to get around the project is to use West 92nd Avenue to West 88th Avenue or just use Wadsworth Boulevard.
