Riding To Idaho Springs and Beyond? Shuttle Service for Construction

CDOT News Release

April 25, 2024–The I-70 Floyd Hill Project requires a long-term closure of the Clear Creek Greenway trail between the US 6 (Exit 244) and Hidden Valley (Exit 243) interchanges for construction and utility work. The closure began in October 2023 and trail users can expect this one-mile portion of the trail to be closed for construction activities through the end of 2027, as it is unsafe for multi-use trail travel. Other segments of the trail will remain open. Visit Clear Creek County’s Website (clearcreekcounty.us/891/Clear-Creek-County-Trail-Maps) to find other trails in your area
