Animas River Trail

Durango, CO

Design Concepts has built a strong relationship with the City of Durango and Sugnet Environmental over the past 6 years. We have worked on teams with them on the design of several portions of trail and a pedestrian bridge along the Animas River. This has included environmental studies, analyzing existing conditions and preparing alternatives to address trail alignments along the river. We worked collaboratively with Sugnet on teams with the 9th Street Underpass and Main Street Underpass respectively, helping to establish the selected alternative to the highly sensitive trail crossing of these intersections. Choosing the best alternative for users and supporting the decision with thorough design has assured that these are positive and fitting additions to the architecture of the trail.
