Dec. 3, 2013:
Due to the flooding in September, please use caution and heed warning signs that may be placed at specific locations on Broomfield trails and open space. City staff has assessed trail damages and continues to work to address trail repair issues.
Most trails in Broomfield have been repaired and reopened, although more significant damage to the Spruce Meadow Trail is still being addressed. Please know that work will progress in a timely manner. However, your patience will be appreciated!
Spruce Meadows Trail Closure Info:
Due to extensive flooding during the September rainstorms, the Spruce Meadows section of the Broomfield Trail is closed. This trail passes through the Spruce Meadows subdivision between High Prairie Way on the southern end and Sheridan Parkway on the northern end. To the right is a map showing the closure.
This trail has been closed due to significant collapses of the embankment between the trail and the adjacent irrigation ditch. This embankment has fallen away in several places right up to the edge of the trail surface, creating a potentially unsafe situation for trail users (pictures below). Broomfield is actively working with the owners of this irrigation ditch and contractors to complete repairs to the embankment and stabilization of the trail edge. The trail will be reopened as soon as possible. Please contact Pete Dunlaevy with any questions about this at 303.438.6216.
