August 1, 2014 - Repair work has been completed on the ever-popular Glenwood Canyon bike path and was completely opened to cyclists and pedestrians Friday, August 1.

Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) maintenance crews and engineering staff were instrumental in getting debris cleared from the path and a plan for the temporary structure in place.  The temporary timber structure was constructed over the most heavily damaged section of the bike path.

Local contractors, Sunlight Structures, ODDO Engineering, Myers & Company, Calco Concrete Pumping, Alpine Lumber and Bill Hildebrand carpentry were involved in working on the repairs.  "We clearly understand the economic impacts of having the Glenwood Canyon bike path out of commission and are pleased to be able to get it reopened for the remainder of the summer season," said CDOT Program Engineer, Joe Elsen. "I am very impressed with the diligent efforts of our internal and external team to work together seamlessly to help the community and get this popular destination open."

The path will be fully operational until the end of September when crews will need to perform some more permanent repairs.
