Some 2D trail projects already complete

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Trail improvement projects are underway in Colorado Springs, and some have already been completed.

Thanks to the voters in November, $2.1 million in excess revenues from 2014 is being used for trail improvements. Trails like the Pikes Peak Greenway, Sinton Trail, and Rock Island Trail will soon see some changes.

City officials said they’re on track and on budget, and they’re building the trails to last 50 years.

“What’s important about these projects is they remove things like tripping hazards, really improve the trail’s surface,” Chris Lieber with Colorado Springs Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Services said.

Bike fixing stations will also be added to popular bike commuting locations in the city. Three stations have already been installed, and two more are planned for later this summer.
