Glenwood Canyon bike path safety closure in place due to high water

GARFIELD/EAGLE COUNTIES—Due to high water levels, Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) crews have closed several sections of the Glenwood Canyon bike path from Shoshone to the Hanging Lake rest area, and from Siloam Springs to Bair Ranch. Crews will continue to monitor the path daily.

The closure began around noon on Sunday, June 5.

Cyclists and pedestrians can still access the path from Glenwood Springs to the Grizzly Creek rest area. Bair Ranch rest area to Hanging Lake rest area is open, but crews anticipate it will be flooded in the next few days as river flows are reporting to run around 11,000 cubic feet per second (cfs).

Cyclists and pedestrians interested in utilizing the path should frequently check the CDOT website for updates. To maintain pathway safety, CDOT reminds cyclists and pedestrians to please obey all warning and closure signs. Cooperation from all users is greatly appreciated.

Travelers can check on the status of the bike path on www.cotrip.org. Updates are also available via Twitter @coloradodot and be sure to Like our Facebook page.
