Mail Creek Trail#
The City is working towards completion of the Mail Creek Trail connection between Kinard Core Knowledge Middle School and the Power Trail. The project will provide access to the Power Trail from the east, eliminating the need for trail users to travel north to Harmony or south to Trilby.
Multiple projects are underway as part this effort, in partnership with the Engineering Department, that contribute towards the trail completion including:
January 2023 Update
The Mail Creek Trail design west of Timberline is complete. The Siphon Pedestrian Overpass Project connecting to the Power Trail is currently being designed. The Mail Creek Trail east of Timberline is currently in the preliminary design phase.
A neighborhood meeting is anticipated to occur in Winter 2023. Stay tuned!
December 2021 Update
The first of three planned projects to connect the Mail Creek Trail to the Power Trail will begin in December, 2021. This project will construct a trail underpass at Timberline Road just south of Mail Creek Ditch. This project is anticipated to be completed in late Spring, 2022. For additional information, please reference the Timberline Road Widening - Stetson Creek to Trilby link above.
As these improvements are constructed, the City will continue designing a trail overpass at the Union Pacific Rail Road as well as finalize a trail alignment through the Mail Creek corridor. Trail improvements east of Timberline Road are anticipated to be designed by late Summer, 2022 and constructed in Fall, 2022. For additional information on the overpass, please reference the Siphon Pedestrian Overpass link above.
February 2021 Update
Park Planning and Development is currently evaluating trail alignments through the Mail Creek corridor. No final alignment has been determined. The City will reach out at an appropriate time to discuss the project with neighbors in more detail.
