Camino Crossing Design

Camino del Rio near 12th St

Project Information/Description

Pedestrian and bicycle underpass of Camino del Rio near 12th Street. This project will advance community accessibility and walkability by complying with ADA Accessibility Standards and creating a direct and safe connection to downtown Durango from the Animas River Trail. The crossing will also promote environmental and social sustainability by making it safer and easier for people to travel downtown by transportation modes other than a single-occupancy vehicle. Additionally, this crossing aligns with an enhanced livability and sense of place by connecting the community to parks and the Animas River Trail.

Project Details

This project provides a safe and convenient connection for pedestrians and cyclists between the Animas River Trail and downtown Durango with an under-grade crossing across Camino del Rio. This design project is the second step in a 3-step process. The first step, a feasibility study, was completed in the spring of 2020, which explored the feasibility of under-, over-, or at-grade crossings at each intersection from 6th Street (College Drive) to 12th Street along Camino del Rio. This project will complete design of a below-grade separated crossing of Camino del Rio near 12th Street. The design of this project is a carry forward from 2022. The design process kicked off in August 2021 and is anticipated to be completed in August 2023.
