Bridge Below Slaughterhouse / Tree in EntranceExam

Last year I figured the bridge below Slaughterhouse became a problem for my 12' Cat at about 2100. Rumor was that they were going to raise the bridge last fall. Did this happen? Is it still the plan?

Also heard of a log blocking Entrance Exam. Is it still there?

Thanks for any info!

the wood comes and goes, most has been removed. but there could always be more, with the flows dropping it is far less likely to have any big trees like a few weeks ago.

the bridge has NOT been raised. however, i had a discussion with a pitkin county open space person last week, apparently the money is in the budget for this coming fall/ winter to raise the bridge 3 feet.

i KNOW i can clear the bridge in my 14x24 cat at 1700 and under. i have been told by many people that over 2000 is iffy and over 2200 is no way. but my seats and oar towers are quite tall. 24" tubes and 8 inch towers plus the locks, the seat is even taller but can flip down to a level below the towers.
i am waiting for the level to drop below 2k and then go have a look at it.
