Denver trail closure begins June 17

June 3, 2019

June 3–Sand Creek Greenway staff learned of a significant trail closure that will begin JUNE 17 for a water control construction project. Quebec to Central Park Blvd bridge in Denver will be closed for several months, as large construction vehicles will provide a safety hazard for trail users; the geography of Sand Creek, the trail and the project provide few options for detours. Trail users will be routed north through the Northfield area through the summer and early fall.

We know many of you use the Greenway to get to work, school, shopping and rely on it for recreation and access to nature. We regret the length and extent of this closure and we’re hoping to secure an early “open” date.

At this time, the closure is expected to last from June 17 to October 25.

Note: when we originally posted this news item, the closure date was 6/10. By working with the City and County of Denver and the contractor, the date was delayed until 6/17.

Take Action!

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.
