Update to hazards on the Upper Colorado River between State Bridge and Dotsero
Due to current high water conditions, there are the following hazards on the Upper Colorado River between State Bridge and Dotsero:
- Bridge at Bond (between State Bridge and Catamount): Very low water clearance. The Colorado River Outfitters Association has talked with the private landowner to allow portaging around the bridge if needed. However, there is a locked gate that one would still have to lift their vessel across and climb across to portage. For more information, please contact the Colorado River Outfitters Association.
- Twin Bridges (south of Pinball): Passable. Use caution.
- Dotsero Bridge: Very low water clearance.
This is effective 5 pm., Tuesday, June 22, 2011.
Other bridge clearances may be hazardous and should be approached with extreme caution!
Swift current, debris, and changes to the river channel may create additional hazards.
