Crews Gulch Trail Underpass

Crews Gulch Trail Underpass
City: Colorado Springs
Year: 2001
Project Description:

 Kiowa Engineering prepared designs for El Paso County Parks and Recreation Department for the Crews Gulch Trail/Railway Underpass. The project included a new debris shed structure under the Denver and Rio Grande Western Railway.  The project also involved installation of a drop structure in the drainageway, trail construction, and construction management services. 

The project presented multiple physical constraints within the tight confines of the railway right-of-way and the Crews Gulch drainageway. 

The process of negotiating accommodations for trail users with the D&RGW RR proved complex, but ultimately a safe and aesthetic passageway for trail users was accomplished.
