Community members who enjoy walking along and kayaking on the Boulder Creek will be happy to hear that work is being done in one area to help manage erosion and improve the concrete path.
Update: Due to weather delays, the work for both projects is scheduled for the week of March 28.
Mile High Flood District (MHFD) is coordinating with the city on two projects along Boulder Creek. The first will be west of Eben G. Fine Park under Boulder Canyon Drive where pedestrians walk and kayakers enter the stream. The work will include the placement of boulders at an entrance to the water for erosion control and concrete improvements to the walkway that is parallel to the creek.
This work is scheduled to start on Monday, March 21 and last about a week. Boulder Creek Path will be closed occasionally during construction.
For the second project, MHFD will be grouting bridge supports for 28th Street and 28th Street Frontage Road along Boulder Creek. The supports will be grouted to extend the life of the supports and the bridge.
Construction equipment will be staged along 28th Street Frontage Road with one lane closed. Boulder Creek Path will not be impacted by the construction. The work is also scheduled to start the third week of March and take 2-3 days.
