Trails

From the Tollway to the Trailways

E-470 is more than just a tollway. Over the last several years in conjunction with road widening projects, the Authority has built more than 12.5 miles of the High Plains Trail – which runs adjacent to the tollway – to provide better connections for people on foot and on bikes to existing trails in the east Denver-Metro area, including the Cherry Creek, Piney Creek, Happy Canyon, and C-470 Trails. In addition, E-470 also strives to partner with its member jurisdictions on trail projects in the region.

Current Trail Closures

E-470’s contractor T-P Enterprises, Inc., will perform concrete repair on the E-470/C-470 trail which will require trail closures from Yosemite Street to Jamaica Street, and Jamaica Street NB to the E-470 NB On ramp

A full closure of the trail from Yosemite Street to Jamaica Street will be in effect from Monday, May 6 to Friday, May 24, 2024, weather permitting. 

In addition to the full trail closure, as part of this work, E-470 will have daytime closures as follows: 

  • E-470 SB to I-25 NB right lane on Monday – Friday, 9 am to 3 pm to accommodate a concrete pump truck. E-470 SB to I-25 NB Right lane and shoulder closure.  
  • Jamaica St. NB to E-470 NB Onramp right lane closure Monday – Friday 8:30 am-3:30 pm. Jamaica NB On Ramp RT lane closure. 

This concrete work is associated with addressing safety issues.  Alternate routes for trail access are advised.  For more information, please contact E-470 customer service at 303-437-3470.

Current Trail Projects

  • The current phase of E-470 road widening will include an extension of the High Plains Trail from 26th to 64th Avenues and from 88th to 104th Avenues within Aurora and Adams County. The trail extension is expected to be complete by 2025.
  • E-470 (along with other municipalities) has partnered with Arapahoe County to help fund a pedestrian overpass to help facilitate safer crossings at Parker Road for people on foot. The overpass is the first phase of a project that will eventually connect the High Plains Trail to the Cherry Creek Trail in Arapahoe County. For project updates, please visit Arapahoe County’s website.

Future Trail Projects

2023

  • E-470 will partner with the City of Aurora to build a multi-use path connecting the bike lane on Jewell Avenue to the High Plains Trail.
  • The Authority will team up with Adams County to extend the Platte River Trail through the Riverdale Bluffs Open Space. E-470 is contributing about $3 million for this 1.75-mile trail extension.
There are dedicated parking spaces for High Plains Trail users at the E-470 Administration building.
