    Staff Directory


  • Most of the bridge east of Deer Creek Road is expected to be complete in mid-June. Once complete, grading will begin for all of the trail length south of I-80.
  • Paving south of I-80 is expected to be complete in July.
  • The trail connection to Creekside Ballpark is expected to open in late summer 2018 and will open as soon as it is safe to do so.
  • Trail work north of I-80 involves another bridge over Clear Creek, a 10’ x 10’ box culvert across a large drainage channel, and work associated with crossing under multiple I-80 and I-380 bridges.  
  • Once the trail opens, the trail segment between I-80 and I-380 will be closed on a temporary basis due to the I-80/I-380 interchange project. View the trail alignment relative to the interchange project limits (PDF).
