New Construction on Upper Ark
They have finally started construction on new put-in for Numbers, a half mile or so above #1. Most of the rock work at water level is done, but lots of grading left to be done for parking and access. Does anyone know when it will be open? Will a easier put-in result in overcrowding?
Also construction going on at the dam below Granite. Looks like a water diversion project, not a whitewater improvement project. Construction is for Homestake Diversion (Aurora & Colorado Springs) They did clean up the dam and added what looks like a fish ladder. It seems like it was a missed opportunity to create a whitewater park / play features. They basically just
made it a 100 yd slide with no features. It appears ready to boat and I'll give it a try next time I'm on Pine Creek.
Anyone have any further info?
