[ARCHIVED] City Closes Section of Riverfront Trail Due to Impact of Spring Run Off

Bike with notice of trail closure at Redlands Parkway Underpass

In years like this where spring run-off is high, impact to the Riverfront Trail is not unusual. The closure cuts off a large section of the trail system between Redlands Parkway and Walker Wildlife Area near I-70B. 

Trail users commuting between Grand Junction and Fruita are being detoured on Riverside Parkway/River Road from 25 Road to Railroad Avenue right before the I-70B underpass. Riverside Parkway/River Road has a bike lane; however, it is a higher speed road and motorists and bicyclists need to exercise caution when traveling Riverside Parkway/River Road between 25 Road and I-70B underpass.

The Riverfront Trail is still open and accessible for use from 25 Road to Redlands Parkway and up into the Redlands; however the trail heading west at the underpass of Redlands Parkway is closed.

The city is monitoring trails and will provide updates if additional closures and detours are necessary.
