Construction Closes Section of Poudre River Trail Through April

Work starts next week — as soon as Tuesday, Jan. 21 — on repairs to the Poudre River Trail.

Repair work will completely close the trail between 35th Avenue and Rover Run Dog Park, 5207 F St., until mid-April.

Construction will repair sections of trail damaged by flooding during the last decade. In addition to repairing flood damage, construction crews will restore the streambank and establish native vegetation.

Officials understand the inconvenience caused by completely closing a section of the Poudre River Trail and thank trail users for their understanding during this critical repair and restoration project. This project will greatly improve the trail experience for users and help create a sustainably protected and restored riverbank.

As crews work on repairing this important section of Greeley trail, officials ask residents and lovers-of-the-outdoors to respect the closure, give the construction plenty of room to operate safely, and honor the fencing and boundaries set up to protect users and construction workers alike.

Users can enjoy the trail west from Rover Run Dog Park and east of the closure from the Poudre Ponds trailhead at 35th Avenue.
