No. That will be f'ed up by some other construction project. I believe there is going to be another phase of I-70 repaving in the canyon again this year but haven't yet heard how it will affect things.

So how will this effect river trips floating by during the construction? Are they going to expect boaters to portage? Will they keep a designated passage for boaters to float by under the construction? I have not been able to find any info on this topic.

What bigdave said is about the most comprehensive thing I've heard so far. Beyond that, it sounds like there will be times when it will not be safe to be on the river in the vicinity of the construction. The details need to be worked out and hopefully we will be able to be part of the discussion. Whether that will mean no passage on a particular day, or daily within certain times I hope we will be able to provide input so they know what would cause the least disruption. They seem like they want input and are trying to be accommodating.

This may be inquiring about the obvious, but they are taking snow melt into construction consideration, right? Meaning work in the river and its banks would probably be a lot easier at 2-5k vs 10-15k flows.

For any locals out that way, how's it looking? I went by in late Jan, but couldn't see much more than an excavator or 2 and a bunch of orange fence.
