 August 2014                      

We are pleased to announce that all trails including Coal Creek and Rock Creek Trails are open as of July with the exception of one portion of Coal Creek Trail near Empire Rd.  The section of trail between Empire Road and W. Centaur Cir is CLOSED TO PUBLIC ACCESS UNTIL WORK IS COMPLETE.  For the safety of trail users and the contractor NO ACCESS TO THIS TRAIL SECTION WILL BE PERMITTED.  Contractor will be on-site beginning August 6th.  This closure will be in effect for approximately 3 weeks. 

The trails have been restored and/or slightly re-routed to accomodate all users after sustaining considerable damage by last September's flood.  There are two detours to take into account - these detours MUST be utilized to ensure the safety of trail users and allow contractors to perform their work without risk of injury to anyone. 

The detours include the following locations: Coal Creek underpass at S. Public Road and Coal Creek underpass at 120th St.  Both of these underpass locations are CLOSED until they are fully restored this summer.  However pedestrian crosswalks have been installed on street level to allow trail users to safely navigate the road crossings.  Please utilize the button-activated flashing crosswalk equipment before crossing these streets. 

On the Coal Creek Trail at S. Public Rd. there is a well marked detour re-route which will guide users onto Old Laramie Trail in order to get around the underpass at S. Public Road.  The underpass remains closed and not accessible until it is repaired this summer.  Cross over S. Public Road using the pedestrian crosswalk and flashing lights.

At 120th St. the Coal Creek Trail underpass repairs are 50% complete.  Users may continue to cross over 120th St. using the pedestrian crosswalk and flashing lights.  Please be aware of construction efforts in this area and stay alert when navigating the passageway at 120th St.

The trails are open and functional - please enjoy!

For your safety, the safety of others and to help speed the repair process, please obey the detours where indicated by signage until otherwise notified.
The contractor hired by the city has begun the process of trail and underpass re-construction on the Coal Creek Trail.  Project completion date is estimated to be late September 2014.
