Resilient St. Vrain
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.

St. Vrain Greenway Trail Detour
St. Vrain Greenway Trail closures have been moving steadily westward with progress on the Resilient St. Vrain project. Currently, the trail is closed from South Pratt Parkway to Boston Avenue, in a closure expected to last through the end of 2020. An informational sign is displayed at Boston Avenue, and an on-street detour route is marked. Read an August 2019 news release about the trail closure and detour route >
Recreational Use of St. Vrain Creek
The St. Vrain Creek is open to public use downstream of Main Street, as part of the Dickens Farm Nature Area. Signs mark a designated open water access point at Main Street and takeout points east of Martin Street and at the 119th Street trailhead. Remember that any time you enter the creek, it is at your own risk. Learn more about guidelines for recreational use of St. Vrain Creek >
