News Conference - Overview of Storm Impact and Update May 8, 2015, 10 a.m.
Wilderness Park - Most internal trails remain closed. The Day Camp area was not damaged and remains open. Because of standing water, it has been difficult to assess all of the damage.
Jamaica North Trail - The trail remains closed south of Pioneer Blvd. Flood waters washed off limestone and, in some cases, the trail and base. Water also washed away the connection of the trail to the abutment on one bridge, which will require repair. If FEMA makes a disaster declaration, funding will be available to cover much of the repair, and a timeline can be established. If there is no disaster declaration, repairs will be delayed until a funding plan and timeline can be developed.
Boosalis Trail - The underpass at 48th remains closed, but the at-grade crossing is open. A section on the west side of 48th will remain closed until a void next to a culvert can be repaired. The funding and timeline are also dependent on a FEMA disaster declaration.
Salt Creek Levee Trail - The part west of the Haymarket Park that goes under a train truss remains closed because the cage around the trail is filled with debris. The Lower Platte South NRD is scheduled to clean up the area to have this section open by Wednesday, June 10.
