Scott Lancaster Trail

  • 1/5/2023 - The section of the Greeenway from the Game Check Station (I-70 exit# 243) to County road 314  (East Idaho Springs Rd, including the Scott Lancaster Memorial Bridge, is closed while the waste water treatment plant is being upgraded.  Please use the detour on road 314 until construction is completed,  a new bridge to replace the Scott Lancaster Bridge is in place but not complete. We are anticipating completion of this stretch of the Greenway to be finished summer of 2023. Until then know that the current detour is dirt road and will have significant construction traffic on it.
