Longmont residents can learn about the next $7.5 million phase of the Spring Gulch No. 2 Greenway project at an April 25 open house.

The work, which will begin later this spring and continue for about 15 months, is to include construction of the greenway trail and drainage improvements from Stephen Day Park, 1340 Deerwood Drive, southeast to the Union Reservoir Nature Area, 461 Weld County Road 26.

The project will address drainage, open space and transportation issues, city officials said. This phase of the Spring Gulch No. 2 Greenway, which city officials said would cost $7.5 million, includes a box culvert system consisting of a pedestrian underpass and drainage culverts under County Line Road.

City staff also will update residents about a related $3 million project, which will include road widening and construction of a pedestrian connection intended to increase the safety of County Line Road between Ninth and 17th avenues. Construction is slated to begin in late spring after overhead utility lines in the work area have been relocated.

Improvements will include limited widening of County Line Road from 17th Avenue to Spring Gulch No. 2 near Trail Ridge Middle School to accommodate on-street bike lanes and left-turn lanes along the entire segment. Intersection improvements will be made where needed, and sidewalks will be added along the west side of County Line Road.

The April 25 meeting follows a similar open house the city held on March 20.
