UPDATE JULY 29, 2015–CLOSURE IS SCHEDULED FOR MONDAY, AUGUST 3.
The Midland Trail Underpass at I-25 to America the Beautiful Park will close permanently in a few weeks. Originally scheduled for July 20, the closure has been delayed by up to several weeks, while mitigation plans are put into effect for contaminated water discovered near the site. We will update this post when we get a new schedule from the project manager.
Midland Trail detour routes will be in place until the new trail configuration opens in summer of 2017. The eventual alignment of the trail will be closer to Fountain Creek.
Detour: Eastbound trail users will take Chestnut Street north to Cucharras Street, continue as it becomes Walnut Street and connects to Colorado Avenue, then take Colorado Avenue east under I-25 to the Greenway Trail or continue on Colorado Avenue to Cimino Drive to access America the Beautiful Park and connect back to the Midland Trail.
