St. Vrain Greenway Trail Detour
St. Vrain Greenway Trail closures have been moving steadily westward with progress on the Resilient St. Vrain project. Now, it's time for the big one. The trail is currently closed from Main Street to Boston Avenue, in a closure expected to last up to 2 years. Info signs are up at Main and at Boston, and an on-street detour route is marked.

Recreational Use of the St. Vrain Creek
The St. Vrain Creek downstream of Main Street is open to public use. A designated open water access point at Main Street and takeout points east of Martin Street and at the 119th Street trailhead will be designated by signs. Remember that any time you enter the creek, it is at your own risk. Learn more about accessing the creek >
Resilient St. Vrain is Longmont's extensive, multi-year project to fully restore the St. Vrain Greenway and improve the St. Vrain Creek channel to protect people, property and infrastructure from future flood risk. The project, sometimes referred to as RSV or RSVP, was developed after Longmont experienced catastrophic flooding in September 2013. Learn more about the Resilient St. Vrain Project in the 3-minute overview video below.
