  • I usually ride on the Rio Grande trail, How do I get from 23rd to 29th street?
    From the 23rd street intersection follow the clearly marked way finding and detour signs. The reroute will take you down Grand Ave. sidewalk to 29th street. Please see the map below.
  • My kids go to Sopris Elementary School it starts August 17 what kind of traffic impact should I expect?
    As you are already aware, the new traffic alignment has been in place for a few weeks. It's important to be aware that the volume of traffic will significantly increase as buses and parents drive their kids to school. This will impact your daily commute and drop-off/pick-up process at Sopris Elementary. To ensure a more manageable and stress-free daily commute, allow yourself some additional time and stay informed about the traffic changes. We strongly advise planning extra time to navigate around the increased traffic and potential congestion, particularly at the entrance or exit to Mt. Sopris Drive, as both directions will be accessing the same road for Sopris Elementary.
