West Midland Trail Pedestrian Bridge

Grand Opening: W. Midland Trail and Pedestrian Bridge

On June 15, at 1pm, the City of Glenwood Springs will host a ribbon cutting to celebrate the opening of the West Midland Trail and Pedestrian Bridge to foot and bicycle traffic. The new bridge crosses over Midland Avenue, between Wulfsohn and Devereux, near I-70 exit 114.

The West Midland Trail is a multi-use, three-quarter-mile long trail segment stretching from Lowe’s to the White Water Park. The project, which includes a section of trail being constructed by RFTA, is intended to provide a safe route for pedestrians and cyclists from the Glenwood Springs Middle School to downtown Glenwood to use during the Grand Avenue Bridge detour in 2017 and beyond. The trail and bridge were partially funded through a $375,000 Garfield County Federal Mineral Lease District grant.

Parking in the area is limited, and those attending are encouraged to park at the RFTA Park and Ride on Wulfsohn Rd. For those wanting to experience the new trail first hand, at 12:30 p.m. there will be a community bike ride from City Hall to the pedestrian bridge.
