Expect major delays on I-25 near Lone Tree this weekend

Be on the lookout for overnight closures of Interstate 25 in the Lone Tree area this weekend.

The Colorado Department of Transportation will replace part of the Sky Ridge Avenue Bridge between Ridgegate Parkway and Lincoln Avenue that goes over I-25 starting at 7 p.m. Saturday and ending near 1 p.m. Sunday.

During this time, northbound I-25 lanes and two southbound lanes will be closed for 18 hours. Expect significant traffic delays in both directions during this stretch, CDOT said in a news release. A detour will be in place for northbound travel. Motorists are urged to avoid this area and to seek alternative routes.

Northbound motorists can use exit 192 (Ridgegate Parkway) as a detour.

The work will replace part of the bridge that was damaged by a commercial truck in February. The rest of the work will be performed at night during the rest of June with no anticipated day closures that will impact daytime traffic.
