Poudre Trail reopens ahead of schedule

FORT COLLINS – The City of Fort Collins announced today that the Poudre Trail, which was closed between Lincoln and Lemay avenues during construction of the new WoodWard Inc. headquarters, has re-opened six weeks earlier than expected.

The trail, which has been closed since Oct. 1, 2013, will remain an active construction site as part of the Woodward Technology Center development through 2015.

The trail was originally scheduled to open in early May.

“We are very pleased that the team came together to make this happen,” Craig Foreman, director of City of Fort Collins Parks Planning, said in a statement. The city’s contractor on the trail project is Walsh Construction Inc.

Woodward is building a new corporate campus on the former Link-N-Greens golf course west of Lemay Avenue between Mulberry Street and Lincoln Avenue. Updates on the project can be found at www.fcgov.com/woodward.

“This has been a great project and we’re proud to open this trail to the public,” Matthew Walsh of Walsh Construction Inc. said in a statement. “As always, with construction of a project like this, there are going to be hurdles. Collaboration with City of Fort Collins staff, William T. Welch Company, Mortenson and Woodward helped overcome the obstacles and get this great stretch of trail open to the public.”
