The Regional Trail connecting the Fitzsimons RTD light rail station and the Fitzsimons Campus is scheduled for a temporary closure. This closure is required for the construction of underground utilities that cross the Regional
Trail.

The temporary closure is scheduled to begin Monday, April 29, 2019, and end on Friday, June 21, 2019. At this time, the trail will be closed at the pedestrian crosswalk across the Fitz RTD station to the intersection of 23rd Avenue

As during this closure, pedestrians are encouraged to use the CU Anschutz Medical Campus Shuttle.

As part of this work, portions of the trail will be removed. Open trenches will be crossing the trail at multiple points. Heavy construction equipment will be crossing and working along the trail. Due to this, no pedestrians or bicyclists will be allowed access to the trail during this closure.
