I-25 Interchange: Midland and Pikes Peak Greenway trails scheduled to re-open late summer
The community will soon see two new pedestrian bridges in place as part of the work being done on the Interstate-25/Cimarron interchange project – one over Monument Creek and one over Fountain Creek. Once the Fountain Creek and Monument Creek pedestrian bridges are in place, the project team will finish remaining trail and stream improvements work to open all of the trails by late summer 2017.
Please Check below for specific planned trail closures and improvements related to the I-25 interchange project
PIKES PEAK GREENWAY TRAIL
Watch for flaggers stationed on Pikes Peak Greenway and Bear Creek trails intermittently, directing pedestrian and bike traffic through the area.
The paved section of Pikes Peak Greenway trail is open. The gravel section of the Pikes Peak Greenway Trail remains closed until late summer 2017.
A new bridge will be installed in May 2017, located just east of the old location and will be a longer and wider structure to accommodate creek improvements and higher flows.
The detour for the Midland Trail to Colorado Avenue is still in place until late summer.
The new Monument Creek pedestrian bridges will be placed this spring. This pre-fabricated Monument Creek pedestrian bridge structure was purchased by the City of Colorado Springs and is being currently being installed . This bridge will be located north of Cimarron Street and will provide a new connection from the paved Pikes Peak Greenway Trail over Monument Creek, which becomes the realigned Midland Trail along Fountain Creek to the west.
