FOSSIL CREEK TRAIL UNDERPASS

FORT COLLINS, CO

More Than Just a 1-Mile Trail

This project involved the construction of a one mile-long trail that completes a major connection between two trail systems in Fort Collins, crossing over multiple R.O.W. jurisdictions. A portion of Trilby Road was closed to allow our excavation and placement of a 78-foot precast box culvert, which allowed the trail to pass under Trilby Road.

Additional improvements included a 40-foot and 100-foot prefabricated steel pedestrian bridges to cross Fossil Creek in two locations. Due to the unique conditions around Fossil Creek, extra care was taken during any earth moving operations to allow for inspections looking for any fossil material unearthed.
