Fort Collins Utilities and City Engineering are working on a project to replace the bridge over Spring Creek at Edora Park and improve and restore the creek. Preliminary Utilities work began in September and work in Spring Creek will start early next year.

Fort Collins Utilities and its contractor, Connell Resources, began construction of structural modifications to facilitate the roadway bridge work, including a buried water quality vault, raising a sanitary sewer manhole and constructing a protective concrete cap over the sanitary sewer line.

The Riverside Bridge project, which crosses Spring Creek near the Edora Pool Ice Center (EPIC), will be replaced by City Engineering beginning in mid-September. Visit for more information. During the full closure of Riverside Avenue that began in October, access to EPIC will be from Stuart Street. Other traffic and trail detours will be modified as needed and clearly marked.

City Engineering will raise Riverside Avenue out of the 100-year floodplain. Utilities work to realign Spring Creek will begin in mid-January, and includes stabilizing banks and improving fish and wildlife habitats. Revegetation and restoration of the landscape will continue through the summer. Most of the work will take place between Riverside Avenue and the railroad tracks and some improvements will occur in Edora Park. The creek improvements are scheduled for the fall and winter months to coincide with the lowest Spring Creek flows.
