COLORADO SPRINGS — A new bridge and guardrail will be installed as part of the Goldfield Drive bridge project between Bradley Road and Fontaine Boulevard starting Tuesday.

County contractors will remove the old guardrail and also perform traffic control during the entire project.

Officials said Goldfield Drive will be closed south of Bradley Road and north of Fontaine Boulevard "to thru traffic" while contractors work on the repairs.

Goldfield Drive will be closed and a detour will be in place during the entire project. El Paso County officials said the project should take about two weeks depending on the weather.

The detour will take drivers to Grinnell Boulevard. Fountain Valley School will be accessible from Fontaine Boulevard.
