Coal Creek Trail Closure June 2014 - September 2015
The Coal Creek Trail is closed between Dillon Road and McCaslin Boulevard through fall 2015, while crews construct a new concrete box culvert. Once the culvert is complete, the existing trail will be reestablished through the western portion of the culvert and reopened to the public. The detour utilizing Dillon Road, 88th Street, South Rock Creek Parkway, and McCaslin Boulevard will keep bicyclists safely outside of the construction zone. The detour can be found here and will be in place and signed appropriately.
