A section of Highway 91 near Copper Mountain will be closed overnight on Oct. 26, while crews install a new pedestrian bridge, according to a news release.

Crews will be installing the bridge from 7 p.m. on Oct. 26 to 4:30 a.m. on Oct. 27. During that time, drivers will be able to access Copper Mountain through Interstate 70.
