Silver Plume to Georgetown Trail Improvement Project Begins, Trail Will Be Closed to Pedestrians

April 30, 2019 - Clear Creek County Communications, Colo. – The nearly two mile trail improvement project from Silver Plume (near the Georgetown Loop Railroad Silver Plume Depot) and Georgetown (running parallel to I-70) is scheduled to begin this week (April 29, 2019), and should be completed the week of June 24th.  The estimated cost of the project is $530K, with a Federal TAP (Transportation Alternatives Program) Grant funding 80% of the project, and the County matching $100K.     

“After years of not having the resources, this grant helps us improve the safety and sustainability of a well-utilized trail for pedestrians and bicyclists to enjoy for years to come,” said Karl Schell, Public Works Director.  “Many thanks to our partners in the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) for making this possible now,” he added. 

Jim Noble, Inc., was chosen as the general contractor for the project. The Noble organization has done several other projects around the County, in the past.  The engineering firm chosen was Muller Engineering. 

While the project is under construction, County officials remind users to make alternative plans to using this route; and, progress will be reported as it occurs.
