Canyon is NOT CLOSED!!!
The Canyon is not closed, well mostly. Drove up tonight after work, the closure starts at the intersection with highway 119 (the road to Black Hawk).
I repeat only the section between I-70 and 119 is closed.
This is unfortunate if you love the Upper Clear Creek (Kermits) section as the shuttle is now a real bitch,but everything from Middle Clear Creek through town is accessible.
So if the flow is good enough for you, you can get your self some Black Rock.
