Denver’s Multi-Use Trails get a makeover this summer..

DENVER, CO ­— March 8, 2010 — Denver Parks and Recreation is beginning work this month on a series of trail upgrades and enhancements to revitalize Denver’s renowned multi-use trail system. This trail revitalization program, funded by the Better Denver Bond Program, will greatly improve the trail users experience throughout the City.  The following trail improvements will be included:

 

Bear Creek Trail – This regional trail will be replacing over ¾ of a mile of dilapidated asphalt trail with a new, wider 10-foot section of paved concrete trail.  The Bear Creek Trail Improvements will occur between Lowell Blvd. and Bear Creek Park, Hampden and Sheridan Blvd., and between Webster Street and Wadsworth Blvd.  The focus for this project, above and beyond the improved pavement section itself, is to improve safety, accessibility and mitigate existing drainage and erosion concerns.

 

Harvard Gulch Trail – This multi-use trail will be replacing almost a ½ mile of dilapidated asphalt trail with a new, 8-foot section of paved asphalt trail.  The Harvard Gulch Trail Improvements will occur between Zuni Street and Federal Blvd.  The focus for this project, above and beyond the improved pavement section itself, is to improve safety, accessibility and mitigate existing drainage and erosion concerns.

 

Sanderson Gulch Trail – This regional trail will be replacing almost a mile of dilapidated asphalt trail with a new, wider 10-foot section of paved concrete trail.  The Sanderson Gulch Trail Improvements will occur between Wolff Street and Tennyson Street, Raleigh Street and Lowell Blvd., Irving Street and Hazel Court, and through a portion of Ruby Hill Park between Osage Street and Mariposa Street.  The focus for this project, above and beyond the improved pavement section itself, is to improve safety, accessibility and mitigate existing drainage and erosion concerns.

 

Highline Canal Trail – This regional trail will be replacing approximately 1-¼ miles of dilapidated asphalt trail with a new, 8-foot section of paved asphalt trail.  The Highline Canal Trail Improvements will occur between Quebec Street and Yosemite Street.  The focus for this project, above and beyond the improved pavement section itself, is to improve safety, accessibility and mitigate existing drainage and erosion concerns.  If funds allow, over 1-¼ miles of additional dilapidated asphalt trail could be replaced with a new, wider 10-foot section of paved concrete trail through Bible Park as well.

 

Clear Creek Trail – This regional trail intends to improve both safety and way-finding ability by adding signage between Clear Creek Drive and 52nd Avenue.

 

Trail Amenities, such as new picnic tables, trash receptacles and park benches will also be added to Cherry Creek Trail, Highline Canal Trail, Lake of Lakes Trail, Lakewood Gulch Trail, and Platte River Trail.

 

During this work, trail users should be aware that detours may direct them to local streets, sidewalks or bike lanes, and they should exercise appropriate safety precautions for those routes. Although there will be temporary trail closures and detours between March and August of 2010 due to construction activities, the ultimate benefits that the trail users will gain through this trail revitalization program should vastly outweigh these minor inconveniences.  The City and County of Denver is excited for construction to begin and for users to be able to enjoy these new improved trails by later in the summer.

 

The City of Denver’s $550 million voter-approved Better Denver Bond program works to improve, preserve, renovate and create amenities that touch citizen’s lives- including roads, libraries, parks, recreation centers, child care sites, hospitals, public safety, City buildings and cultural facilities.

    Great job on this. Sure glad they are making many improvements on the west side of town. We’re here too!

    Good news!
    BTW, has anyone been a bit confused about the bike path detours around and in Paco Sanchez Park? It’s just West of Federal, where the West Corridor FasTracks line goes through. Example: a bike detour sign next to the playground by 10th & Perry, directs one to use a fenced-off bridge, where somebody has nevertheless broken through.
    Maybe I’d better call that in to Parks & Rec, so they can forward the question to the work crew?
