DENVER -- With pain comes progress.

As CDOT crews dismantled the Knox Court Bridge and a portion of the Federal Boulevard Bridge, both drivers and residents in the community felt the crunch.

Anna Camacho, who lives near where the Knox bridge used to stand, said she lives on one side of 6th Avenue and her extended family on the other.

According to Camacho, it took her an hour to go through delays to get from one side to the other.

"It's horrible, we can't even cross," said the life-long West Denver resident.

Sixth Avenue, from I-25 to Sheridan Blvd, has been closed since Friday night as crews work on bridges and the highway.

CDOT said the improvements will make the highway safer and more efficient for commuters and residents.

In the meantime, CDOT advised alternate routes like I-70, Colfax Avenue, Alameda Avenue, Hampden Avenue and C-470.

The highway will re-open Monday morning at 5 a.m.
