Alert: Low Clearance Bridge on Clear Creek

Hello, everyone.

The Peaks to Plains Trail construction team would like to alert all who use Clear Creek to a temporary, low clearance footbridge currently located near the Mayhem Gulch trail head (please see attached map). Warning signs instructing users to disembark and walk around the bridge are also posted several hundred yards upstream from the bridge location. The construction team appreciates your patience while we complete construction on the Peaks to Plains Trail, and any questions or concerns can be directed to: [email protected].

Thank you,
Peaks to Plains Trail Project Public Info Team

just so everyone knows, this particular bridge is in a fairly benign location. I remember seeing a couple of other bridges upstream/downstream are they gone?

Yes, this is the only bridge remaining. We will be sure to re-post when it is removed.

Thank you very much,

Thank you for the update. It is important the boaters using these waters know about all hazards. You are considerate to keep us in the loop.

I'm assuming these bridges won't be removed for some time, no?

Admin note: threads merged

This and the same thread that was in the rafting forum are now merged. Please remember to check the access and safety alerts before you go out in the rising water - just for stuff like this or that log you didn't see last week...

Be safe out there,

-AH

In response to Miller Time, the project team does not have a specific timeline for removing the bridge, but we will make sure to update this thread if anything changes.

Thank you

So this is the section above Black Rock and below the hwy junction. Normally people don't run this unless they're trying to join sections for a long day. It's also in one of the flatter areas of the creek so it really shouldn't be a major concern. It's also highly visible from the road on the shuttle.
