  1. Thank you very much for this information. However, could you let us know if the Blue Heron Section of the Riverfront Trail will remain closed next week as it has been for the last week and, if so, when it will reopen? There isn’t any marked or signed detour either.

    I very much appreciate that you take the time to research and post non-City of GJ projects, and I don’t think we should expect it to be a comprehensive list. I would like to add one more to that list: as of yesterday, L Road was still closed between 20 Road and 21 Road, as it has been for over a week, for, apparently, a culvert replacement. If you find out when this project will be complete can you let us all know? Thank you.

    1. Hi there! In the spring of 2019 a section of trail was lost during the high runoff period. Since that point in time hard closures have been implemented and a detour has been in place. Early last week the City received the permit from the Army Corps of Engineers allowing us to make repairs and armor a 700 lineal foot section of river bank. The Project Team began work Monday and it is estimated that it will take approximately 4 weeks to complete this phase of the project. Following this work if budget allows the concrete trail will be reconstructed.
