When blasting began this spring for the westbound Twin Tunnels project, the rafting season was just getting under way so it made sense to stop rafts on a case-by-case basis just prior to blasting.
With the number of rafts on the water increasing significantly, the spotters along Clear Creek will no longer be stopping rafts. Rather, they will be on hand to communicate with the blaster in charge as to whether there is anyone in the water. The project will delay blasts until rafts have cleared the area.
Thank you for this. Was on a trip a couple of weeks ago and suddenly had to eddy out, was hectic to say the least. Just after stopping we were allowed through. Avoiding this process all together is a great service to us on the river, many thanks!
