Legacy Ridge Parkway Bridges
There are a series of distinctive bridges on Legacy Ridge Parkway as it meanders between 104th Avenue to 112th Avenue. This roadway is the main collector roadway and access way to the several-hundred-acre Legacy Ridge residential golf course development. Tan sandstone quarried near Masonville, Colo., was used on all of the bridges, as well as the identification signs to each neighborhood within the Legacy Ridge subdivision.
The most dramatic bridges are the first two located just north of 104th Avenue. The first bridge is an underpass for golfers and incorporates an extensive series of sandstone wing walls. The second bridge conveys water flowing out of nearby Margaret’s Pond and features attractive arches on each side of the bridge. The east side next to the pond features an attractive waterfall area.
The three other bridges to the north along Westminster Boulevard are underpasses for golfers and each incorporates tan Colorado sandstone. The bridge over the Farmers’ High Line Canal between Legacy Ridge Parkway and the golf course clubhouse is also very attractive.
The bridges were designed by RBD Engineering, at the direction of the City of Westminster staff, and opened in 1994.
