A section of the Town of Windsor’s Poudre Trail will be temporarily rerouted between Eastman Park and County Road 13 beginning Friday, Jan. 20.
The trail is being rerouted to accommodate the construction of a road and a future oil and gas pad, currently in the permitting process. Once the permitting process is complete, pad construction will begin. Upon completion of the pad, a new permanent trail will be constructed to reroute the Poudre Trail around the pad site, as well as a proposed golf course.
The temporary trail is tentatively anticipated to be in place for up to a year, and will be constructed from asphalt aggregate to withstand the elements.
The Poudre Trail Board and the Town of Windsor have reviewed the temporary trail route and are working with the land owner to finalize the new, permanent route.
“All parties involved are working to ensure user safety and trail experience, while incorporating responsible community and energy industry development,” said Eric Lucas, director of Parks, Recreation & Culture.
