The Sky Ridge Vehicle bridge extension project includes road, bridge and utility infrastructure improvements to Sky Ridge Avenue from the intersection of Trainstation Circle, east, and crossing over I-25 (15 feet south of the I-25 light rail bridge). This vehicle bridge will maintain two lanes of traffic in each direction along with a bike lane. Substantial completion is slated for December 2018. The contractor, Balfour Beatty Infrastructure Inc. (BBII), will not extend the roadway to RTD’s Lone Tree City Center Station; this will take place in the future at the developer’s discretion.
