Boulder Creek Path detour established
February 4, 2020:
Work started today on new pedestrian bridge linking Main Campus and neighborhoods north of Boulder Creek. The new bridge will replace a historic connection that was washed away by the 2013 flood. The Boulder Creek multiuse path near 19th Street and Grandview Avenue will be detoured for several months while crews work to restore the historic connection.
Beginning on Tuesday, Feb 4, a section of the Boulder Creek multiuse path near 19th Street and Grandview Avenue will be detoured to allow for construction. The detour will remain in place until Dec. 31, 2020.
