Lower Gunnison Bridgeport Boat Access Flood Damage

The Bridgeport access to the Lower Gunnison River within Dominguez-Escalante National Conservation Area has been altered by recent flooding. It's never been a great boater access, but now it's really a no-go for anything bigger than kayaks or pack-rafts. See attached photos.

The BLM is assessing options for addressing the problem, but it could be a while before it's suitable for bigger boats.
