In 2019, the City of Longmont will begin construction on two projects on the east side of Longmont: constructing Phase 2 of the Spring Gulch #2 Greenway and making improvements to County Line Road.

This community meeting will give residents the opportunity to learn more about the two projects.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m, and a presentation providing an overview of each project will begin at 5:45 p.m. After the formal presentation, we will conduct a community dialog session as well as answer individual questions.

Project managers will be on hand to answer technical questions about the work planned.

All interested residents are invited to attend this community meeting. No RSVPs are needed.

Phase 2 of Spring Gulch #2 Greenway 

The Spring Gulch #2 Greenway project addresses drainage, open space and transportation issues by designing and constructing a greenway trail connection and drainage improvements along Spring Gulch #2. Once complete, the greenway trail will run from Stephen Day Park (west of County Line Road) southeast to Union Reservoir, continuing on to Sandstone Ranch Nature Area and connecting with the St. Vrain Greenway.

Phase 2 of this project will include construction of the greenway trail and drainage improvements from Stephen Day Park southeast to the Union Reservoir Nature Area (at Weld County Road 26). This work will include another box culvert system consisting of a pedestrian underpass and Spring Gulch #2 drainage culverts running under County Line Road.

This phase of the project is anticipated to begin in spring 2019 and continue for approximately 15 months. The underpass and drainage work will be completed in conjunction with road widening and pedestrian connection work planned for County Line Road.

County Line Road Improvements

Improvements have been identified by the City of Longmont that are intended to increase both the safety and operation of County Line Road from 9th to 17th Avenues.

Proposed improvements include limited widening of County Line Road from 17th Avenue to Spring Gulch #2 (near Trail Ridge Middle School) to accommodate on-street bike lanes and left-turn lanes along the entire segment. Intersection improvements will be made where needed, and sidewalks will be added along the west side of County Line Road.

Construction on the County Line Road Improvements is anticipated to begin in late spring 2019 after overhead utility lines in the work area have been relocated by the provider.
