Taft and 57th St

Dear Maria, 

Will the Long View Trail have a tunnel under Taft and 57th Street?

Thank you,
Gordon

Hi Gordon,

We are not considering an underpass at Taft Ave. and 57th Street. It's not feasible to construct an underpass due to the Louden Irrigation Ditch, which parallels Taft. However, we are making improvements to the intersection as part of the Long View Trail Project, including pedestrian push button signals, crosswalks, protective bollards and the trail itself.

The Long View Corridor Trail will be a 4.4-mile multi-use recreation and commuter trail connecting Loveland and Fort Collins. The trail will tie in to the Loveland Recreation Trail System at Sunset Vista Natural Area.

Loveland and Fort Collins, along with Larimer County, received funding from a CDOT Transportation Alternative Project Grant ($1 million) and a Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) Paths to Parks Grant ($1 million), to help pay for construction of the 4.4-mile long, 10-foot wide Long View Corridor Trail, trailhead/parking lot, and intersection improvements to connect to the Loveland and Fort Collins trail systems.
