Raising the Bridge @ Slaughter House

I just read in the Aspen Daily News that they are going to raise the Stein Bridge below Slaughter House so you wont have to portage around it at high water.
The project is expected to begin in the fall of 2014

Is there a low bridge in the Slaughterhouse run? I haven't done it yet, but I ran upper and lower Woody a few years ago at over 3000 cfs and didn't see any bridges down there that would be issues at high water.

Hopefully this is a good year for the Roaring Fork.

Its Down Behind The Airport Business center, you have to go under it to take out at woody creek. At high water it becomes too low to go underneath.
Lets keep iour fingers crosseed for the upcoming season

In my 12' cat, under 1,000 was too bony up top and the bridge was unrunnable over 1800/2000, so Slaughterhouse always had a very limited flow range.
Glad one end of that restriction is about to vanish!
