The City of Glenwood Springs is working on improvements to the Three Mile Creek confluence area. The public can give feedback at an open house on Monday.  

The project is in South Glenwood, where Three Mile Creek meets the Roaring Fork River, near the Atkinson Trail. It’s a popular spot for river access, picnicking and other types of recreation that have damaged the riparian zones: plant and animal habitat along the water’s edge. 

Glenwood Springs received two grants from Pitkin County Healthy Rivers to fund the project, which is meant to protect the riparian zones while preserving trail and river access for people. 

Consultants from Wright Water Engineers have put together improvement options, such as expanding an existing beach area and adding boat tie-offs and footpaths. The options, and their individual costs, will be presented at Monday’s open house at Sopris Elementary School starting at 5:30 p.m.  

Residents can also give input via an online survey.
