La Plata Electric Association (LPEA) has begun Phase I of a project replacing roughly one mile of underground line serving the Bodo Park area. A section of the Animas River Trail will be closed weekdays during Phase I of the project, which will be complete by Dec. 31, 2021. Phase II of the project will commence in 2022.
Bike and pedestrian traffic on the Animas River Trail will be re-rerouted Mondays through Fridays for the project’s duration. The detour begins just north of the La Plata County Humane Society and ends at Baker Lane. The trail will remain open to traffic on weekends and legal holidays.
