Lincoln pedestrian bridge completion on track

Posted

Construction on the pedestrian bridge crossing Lincoln Avenue, between I-25 and Yosemite Street is on track to be completed by the end of the year, barring any extreme weather. Construction on the $7 million dollar bridge began in the spring of this year, and includes an 81-foot tall leaf sculpture, ADA accessible ramps and a lighted walkway.

“Unless we have bad weather, the bridge should be completed on schedule,” said Denisse Coffman, communications manager for the City of Lone Tree.

The project has been a community effort between several partners, including Douglas County, Park Meadows Metropolitan District, South Suburban Park and Recreation District, RidgeGate Investments, OmniPark and Heritage Hills Metropolitan Districts.

Fentress Architects designed the bridge, and also designed the iconic Denver International Airport tented design.

An estimated 89,000 cars drive along the stretch of Lincoln daily, and the bridge will increase safety for both pedestrians and drivers along the busy stretch of road, officials say.
