Flood Repairs in Commerce City

September 2, 2014

IMG_1891The Greenway in Commerce City suffered from the Sept. 2013 floods and now the “heavy lifting” begins!  Please note the following message from the Commerce City staff. 

“The City’s contractor has begun repair work along the Sand Creek Greenway trail from the storm damage of September 2013. There will be a total of 4 different areas along the trail corridor that repair work will be happening.  Today (Sept 2, 2014) we will be installing advance warning signage in four locations to give trail users notification of ‘Trail Work Ahead.’ Our general contractor will make every effort to keep the trail open prior to 8am and after 4pm and on weekends. During work hours, there will be times the contractor will need to briefly close the trail and they will have flaggers present during this time. Bicyclists may be able to dis-mount and walk around the closure if this can be done safely, otherwise there may be a brief delay.”

Thanks to everyone who will be patient and special thanks to Commerce City staff who are rebuilding our beloved trail!

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.
