Midtown Greenway open at Fremont Avenue
Trail has reopened for full use
The Midtown Greenway at Fremont Avenue is open.
Greenway users should use caution when traveling on the paved temporary trail through this area, as crews will continue to be on site at times. And, people riding bikes should be aware that the bike lane on 28th Street will now return to eastbound-only traffic.
We thank you for your patience and understanding as we completed important construction activities that required us to close the Greenway.

Anticipate intermittent delays on the trail
For the remainder of 2019, Greenway users should expect intermittent delays, lasting a few minutes, to allow crews to safely bring in bridge construction materials.
Expect shorter-term trail closures next year
Next year, we anticipate additional closures of the Greenway to complete construction activities such as placing the bridge beams, bridge deck and other structural pieces, as well as replacing the temporary trail with a permanent surface.
We anticipate these closures should be shorter in duration. We will let people know about these closures on our project website, through these updates and with signage on site. When necessary, we will use the temporary reroute we used this year.
Crews working on bridge foundation until winter shutdown
During the week of November 23, crews began installing new bridge foundation elements that include abutment footings on both sides of the bridge.
Before work wraps up for the winter, crews plant to continue work on the north abutment. They will be back on site when weather allows next spring.
