Stay on Designated Detour Routes

The Colorado Department of Transportation would like to remind trail users to stay on all designated trail detour routes. These detour routes have been constructed for the safety of pedestrians and bicyclists to avoid the Interstate-25 Cimarron project construction zone. Signs will be posted to indicate the restricted construction areas. Police have the authority to issue tickets for anyone that enters the restricted construction zone. Please remember this is for your own safety. Please help by passing this information on to your constituents/contacts. Thank you for your assistance in this matter.

Both sides of the Pikes Peak Greenway trail will be OPEN for Labor Day weekend. The west side of the trail will close again for a few days after Labor Day to complete drainage work. Signed detour routes will be in place for users to navigate around the closure. There will be intermittent closures of this trail throughout the project, slated to be complete in Fall 2017.
