Riverfront Trail Closure

Riverfront Trail Detour Route map

The City of Grand Junction and its contractor will begin improvements to the Colorado Riverfront trail, between Hale Avenue within the Riverside Neighborhood, and South 7th Street, on the east side of the 5th Street / HWY 50 overpass. The closure will begin on Monday, January 11th, and remain closed for approximately one week. We anticipate the trail will be open on January 15th. The primary reason for this temporary closure will be for the installation of new utilities, requiring bore holes underneath the riverfront trail in several locations. These new utility lines will service the new Riverfront at Dos Rios development that is currently under construction. 

Within the next few months, additional temporary closures will be necessary for new segments of the riverfront trail to be constructed. Bicycle and pedestrian traffic that normally utilize this portion of the riverfront trail, shall be directed along the detached sidewalk, adjacent to the Riverside Parkway. For those traveling east along the parkway, users will be directed up and over the 5th street overpass and will be able to access the riverfront trail via S. 7th Street. For those traveling west along the parkway, the detour will continue along the parkway, then direct trail users to the intersection of Lawrence and Fairview Avenues, then turn west along Fairview Avenue until it connects with the riverfront trail, adjacent to the Colorado River. It is anticipated that future closures will not require trail users to travel over the 5th Street / HWY 50 overpass. 

Work will take place Monday through Friday from 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. The utility installation will take approximately 1 week to complete. Advanced notification will be given if any additional access needs to be temporarily closed during daytime hours. The Contractor will provide traffic control and adequate detour signage to help trail users through and around the work area, if needed. Please exercise caution around the construction equipment and follow all traffic warning signs in the work areas.
