Monthly TRAIL CONDITION Report – February 2020

The Trail is closed Between the Dog Park on F Street and 35th Ave. – A riverbank restoration and trail reconstruction project is in progress.  The work will affect the Trail between Rover Run Dog Park at F Street and 35th Avenue in Greeley.   The Trail is closed between these locations for the duration of the project.  For your safety, do not go around signs and barricades.  Recreational trail users are advised to use the dog park and/or 35th Avenue as turnaround locations. Commuters are advised to find the safest alternate route to avoid this closure.  This will be an extended closure, with expected completion in mid-April. 

Winter Conditions – For your safety, please practice good judgement when using the trail during winter months.  Trail crews will clear the trail as quickly as possible following a winter storm.   During a forecast calling for snow over multiple days, plowing will not begin until the storm clears. 

Thaw and Freeze - Slippery conditions may exist including packed snow, ice and black ice, especially during cycles of freeze and thaw.

Highway 257 crossing. Use caution at all road crossings, be especially alert at this high-speed highway.  Assume cars will not stop.  Do not let the crossing lights give you a false sense of security.

East of the Kodak Bridge, at mile marker W-8.75, there is a detour where trail users will leave the concrete path for a very short distance, detouring around a flood damaged section.  The detour may be soft and muddy.  Please use caution.  Dismounting is recommended.

Possible equipment on Trail – In Windsor between 7th Street and County Road 13 utility digging is planned.  Equipment may be on the trail from time to time.  Please yield.
