The City of Fort Collins will show off the newly-renovated Linden Street in Downtown this Friday, Sept. 16, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The event will be the first time Linden Street will be temporarily converted into a pedestrian space, demonstrating how the new Linden can be used for events in the future. As such, Linden will be closed to vehicles beginning Friday at 10 a.m. and continuing until Saturday morning.
Live music will be provided by Downtown Michael Brown and Los Mocochetes and other events include a treasure hunt, face painting, balloon animals, and a Linden Street Bingo game.
Linden Street reopened to vehicle traffic as of Friday, Aug. 26, following a multi-year transformation of the street between Walnut and Jefferson streets. Some final tasks remain, but the majority of the $3.5 million project is complete.
The goal of the Linden Street Renovation project is to transform Linden Street into a “convertible street,” which is a roadway that can be closed to vehicular and bicycle traffic and turned into a pedestrian gathering space during special events. The project also serves as an important link between Old Town Square and the River District.
The renovations also include new aesthetic features and landscaping.
