COLORADO -- If you're headed to Denver this weekend, the Colorado Department of Transportation suggests avoiding I-25 in Lone Tree all together. The northbound lanes will be closed during the day and overnight -- the biggest impacts being overnight.
CDOT will replace part of the Sky Ridge Avenue Bridge between Ridgegate Parkway and Lincoln Avenue, over I-25, that was struck by a commercial truck in February.
A detour will be in place for northbound travel, but KRDO Traffic suggests taking Highway 83 to Denver, or detouring to Highway 85 off I-25 in Castle Rock to continue north.
Friday, June 4th -- FULL closure of northbound I-25 and double lane closures on southbound I-25 from Ridgegate Parkway to Lincoln Avenue
Saturday, June 5th -- Single left lane closure of northbound I-25
Sunday, June 6th -- FULL closure of northbound I-25 and double lane closures on southbound I-25 from Ridgegate Parkway to Lincoln Avenue
The Sky Ridge Avenue bridge is closed to traffic. The schedule above is subject to change depending on weather and other unforeseen circumstances.
Detours approaching Lone Tree will take about five to seven minutes with total delays expected to be from fifteen to twenty minutes. Delays are expected to be up to two hours Saturday evening, June 5 through Sunday afternoon, June 6.
There are no further anticipated daytime full highway closures, but full overnight closures will continue through many nights in June.
