Clear Creek closure

The Clear Creek road closure on weekdays during boating season is pretty bad.
Public-Private Partnership to enhance Communications in Clear Creek Canyon — CDOT

Worst time possible. Why close the entire canyon, not sections as the work progresses? Are they trying to screw us?

We need to flex our muscles. The CDOT complaint line is:
(303) 757-9485
Tell them to close the road in sections.

I have always wondered what Clear Creek would be like if the stream bed was unaltered and there was no road or rail road ever built in that canyon. Maybe I can put in at Kermits and pretend the whole way down! Thanks CDOT

At least this didn't happen last season when there was water.

So does this also mean we will have EMS called for every time we flip and are seen by a passerby?

I'm kind of surprised that people don't seem to care about closing this run. Oh, well.

I called the number provided and spoke to a guy named Chris who seemed to take the complaint seriously. While it is too late for this particular project, hopefully, they will take seasonal recreation into account before doing such closures in the future. I encourage you all to call also.

Run the whole thing, hike it or run it on weekends. With one entrance and one exit to the canyon they kinda need to shut the whole thing down. Not many people only go half way on week days. If you need to run it on weekdays hopefully you can work something out with them to allow you access without endangering you.

I wonder what kind of crap is going to end up in the river that we'll have to remove.

I called up the PR office, got a guys number and left a message. Pretty lame to close the canyon during runoff. I don't think we figure at all into their planning.

It's not going to be much if a runoff, but I sure would like to get at least one after work blackrock run in over 250.
