Restoration of Coal Creek Regional Trail System (published 8.21.14)
Extensive flood-related damage was incurred along Coal Creek Trail in Lafayette during the September 2013 flood. The restoration work on this trail is proving to be a long-term endeavor due to extensive damage at the Public Road underpass and the 120th Street underpass. The City of Lafayette Open Space Division has hired a contractor for the restorative work.  The construction company is presently reconstructing 4 major sections of trail damaged by the flood.  The trail is anticipated to fully reopen late summer or early fall 2014.

Updates will be available from time-to-time on this project page. Trail update status and further details can be found at www.cityoflafayette.com/trails. You may also stay informed on trail progress by signing up for email and text alerts using the City's Notify Me online module - www.cityoflafayette.com/NotifyMe.

Burlington Northern Sante Fe Railbanking Agreement (updated 8.21.14)
In January 2013, the City of Lafayette and BNSF reached a railbanking agreement for the segment of railway between milepost marker 20.80 and 22.05 on the eastern side of Lafayette. Utilizing the federal Rails-to-Trails program, railbanking allows a rail carrier to abandon its use of the railroad so that the corridor may be used for a public use, i.e., a trail.  Open Space staff will work to construct a soft-surface trail that will run from Baseline Road south to 120th Street. This summer, with the help of Boulder County Youth Corps, Open Space staff has made progress in bringing this trail to fruition. This trail segment will be a great north-south connector on the eastern edge of the city.
