Aurora FasTrack Sand Creek Park Update

July 25, 2014

RTD and Kiewit Infrastructure Co will be working on the Aurora/I-225 FasTracks light rail line for the next year.  There will be detours at Fitzsimons as the new track is installed on the east and north side of Fitzsimons Parkway and the south side of Sand Creek Park.  The track will also go over Peoria and across Sand Creek on the west side of Peoria.  Please follow all instructions of the construction crews to keep everyone as safe as possible.  Thanks.

The area south of Sand Creek at Sand Creek Park is currently CLOSED – as you can see from the attached photo.  Please follow all posted instructions.  The Sand Creek Regional Greenway trail (which goes through Sand Creek Park north of Sand Creek) is still open.

About the Greenway

The Sand Creek Regional Greenway is a jewel in the necklace of trails that has made Denver a national model for linked trail systems.

This 14-mile public greenway connects the High Line Canal in Aurora, Colorado with the South Platte River Greenway in Commerce City. Along the way, it passes through northeast Denver and the new Stapleton community.

The Sand Creek Regional Greenway is open every day from dawn until dusk. Runners, walkers, nature viewers, horseback riders, and leashed dogs are encouraged to enjoy the trail. We invite you to become acquainted with our wilderness in the city.
