Estimated trail opening:The timeline for this project has been impacted by changes to the I-80/I-380 interchange bridge construction schedule. Future trail closures related to the I-80/I-380 interchange construction will be necessary. Connections under I-80 and I-380 will not be made until at least 2022.
