Trail Closure - Oxbow Natural Area
CLOSURE: A river restoration project will close soft-surface trails at Oxbow Natural Area east of Rossum Drive beginning January 3 for approximately 3 weeks. The Big Thompson Watershed Coalition received grant funding to improve the river corridor from Rossum Drive to Wilson Ave. to provide flood protection, enhance river habitat for fish and wildlife and improve recreation opportunities. The first phase of the project will include construction at Oxbow Natural Area to provide an overflow channel for the river during flood conditions. Soft-surface trails near the river will be closed; however. the paved recreation trail will remain open during construction.
