The bridge closes the last remaining missing segment of the 71-mile High Line Canal Trail in the Denver area.

AURORA, Colo. — A new pedestrian bridge has opened in Aurora. 

The High Line Canal Pedestrian Bridge is open to assist pedestrians over Interstate 70, east of Tower Road.

The City of Aurora celebrated the new bridge with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on June 26.

The city said the new pedestrian bridge closes the most difficult and last remaining missing segment of the 71-mile High Line Canal Trail in the Denver metro area.

The pedestrian bridge completes nearly two miles of multi-use trail to close the gap between Colfax Avenue and East 32nd Parkway.

Aurora officials said the project has improved at-grade street and railroad crossings along the trail to promote safe interactions between trail users along with vehicular and rail traffic. A continuous 8-foot-wide concrete trail ensures better accessibility.

The High Line Canal Pedestrian Bridge project was funded with the support of Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG), Adams County Open Space, Conservation Trust Fund, the High Line Canal Conservancy and multiple City of Aurora departments.
