for safety, but has reopened to the
public and transformed to a trail,
following structural improvements
and repairs to this historical feature.
Much of the P2P Trail closely
follows the rocky creek, and
where possible, there has been an
increase in sustainable water access,
complete with improved rock
staircases along the trail. The P2P
Trail - and the Gateway Segment
- honors the area's mining history
with materials and treatments like
stained concrete, as well as weathered
steel for the bridges and trail
railings that are designed to help
the trail blend in with the canyon.
This
segment
combined
the
GOCO Connect grant scope of 1.25
miles and the Colorado Department
of Transportation (CDOT)
Transportation Alternatives Program
(TAP) funding of $850,650
for an additional 0.5 miles. In addition,
Clear Creek County Open
Space was awarded its CDOT TAP
application request of $480,000 for
the continuation of the P2P Trail
further westward, following the
alignment of the abandoned Colorado
and Southern narrow gauge
railway corridor.
The vision for the P2P Trail is a
65-mile trail of statewide significance
that will serve the 3 million
residents of the Denver metro area.
This project relies upon 11 partnerships
that are central to the success
of this effort. The goal is that the
P2P Trail will one day connect
the South Platte River Trail north
of Denver in Adams County to
the headwaters of Clear Creek at
Loveland Pass on the Continental
Divide. Once completed, it
will
connect four counties and seven
cities, with a total elevation gain of
more than 6,700 feet.
This legacy trail project will offer
visitors a truly quintessential Colorado
experience. That is why it was
chosen by Colorado's governor as
one of the state's 16 highest priority
trail projects as part of the Colorado
the Beautiful Initiative.
Project
complexities
included
steep canyon walls, narrow trail corridors,
sensitive riparian areas, historic
structures, access, impacts to
visitors, and the Ute Ladies' Tresses
Orchid - a federally threatened species.
Recognizing these significant
design and construction challenges,
the project received many awards
in 2017, including the prestigious
Honor Award from the American
Council of Engineering Companies
as one of the top 36 engineering
projects in the country.
