OPEN! I just talked to the CDOT gate keepers at the canyon and in fact is OPEN to recreational use. I drove up to tunnel 2 to scout some stuff. Their only concern is folks trying to drive past the baracade at the rock slide. They said the area is still very dangerous and needs control work done still. If you gotta get Upper, go the long way.
Thanks CDOT for working making it happen!
