Burlington Northern Sante Fe Railbanking Agreement (updated 8.21.14)
In January 2013, the City of Lafayette and BNSF reached a railbanking agreement for the segment of railway between milepost marker 20.80 and 22.05 on the eastern side of Lafayette.

Utilizing the federal Rails-to-Trails program, railbanking allows a rail carrier to abandon its use of the railroad so that the corridor may be used for a public use, i.e., a trail.  Open Space staff will work to construct a soft-surface trail that will run from Baseline Road south to 120th Street.

This summer, with the help of Boulder County Youth Corps, Open Space staff has made progress in bringing this trail to fruition. This trail segment will be a great north-south connector on the eastern edge of the city.
