Tunnels 5 & 6

"Tunnels 5 & 6" is the easternmost section of the Clear Creek Greenway.  It connects with the trails along Clear Creek going through Golden and is the first link connecting the Clear Creek Greenway with the network of trails in Jefferson County and on into Denver.

The Clear Creek County Open Space Commission has managed this project thus far, bringing the project to nearly 100% design, working closely with Jefferson County to get that stage.  Construction is slated to begin later this year and will take 12 months.


The section of trail from Tunnel 6 to the 6 & 40 interchange is not yet designed or funded.

6 & 40 TO the Scott LAncaster MEmorial Trail

The section from the 6 & 40 interchange to the Veterans Memorial Tunnels will be designed and built as part of the Floyd Hill I70 improvements coming in the next 3-4 years.
