A Message from Lisa:

Welcome to the end-of-summer 2015 edition of "The Goodbee Connection", an e-newsletter designed to keep our friends and clients in the know about our adventures in the utility coordination world and beyond! The summer months were busy for the Goodbee team as we continued to hone our design-build skills on the RTD North Metro Rail Line project, attend various industry forums, and participate in yet another Habitat for Humanity Women-Build event. From hard work on the design and design-build projects we're currently involved on to marathons and "framing blitzes", I like to think we're on our way to achieving that ever-elusive work-life balance! Read on for more details and, as always, we appreciate your continued support and interest in Goodbee & Associates.      

ABOUT OUR WORK ON THE SKYWAY BRIDGE
You may have seen headlines or overheard some recent industry discussion about the Skyway Bridge that is currently under construction along the RTD North Metro Rail Line Design-Build project. It will be the longest bridge in Colorado at 9,533 feet and will carry commuter trains through north metro Denver, crossing 11 existing transportation corridors and waterways. At its highest point, the Skyway Bridge will stand almost 50 feet above grade. Goodbee utilities design for this project was led by Sheresa Lehocky, Design Project Manager, and involved potholing/locates, impact analysis and relocation plans. Design components included coordination of electric, communication, fiber backbone, water, sanitary and high pressure gas lines. Utilities operations on the construction side, led by Design-Build Project Manager Laura Harmon, include relocations and replacements to accommodate the structure: six electric transmission mains; primary electric facilities serving local large municipal customers; and local/large carrier fiber. Construction is expected to continue for approximately another 18 months. We look forward to providing you with further updates as this project progresses.

It's being celebrated as "Bridging the Gap" over I-25.
