More of Glenwood Canyon path closed

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado ” The Glenwood Canyon recreation path has been closed temporarily by the Colorado Department of Transportation Tuesday afternoon due to high waters.

The path is closed between Grizzly Creek Rest Area and the Hanging Lake Rest Area, from mile marker 122 to 125 on Interstate 70.

“With the warmer temperatures, the heavy snowfall from this winter is quickly melting, creating a safety hazard along the path,” said CDOT Maintenance Supervisor D’Wayne Gaymon. “At this time, we do not know when the path will reopen as it depends on how quickly the water recedes.”

CDOT will continue to monitor water levels along the path and will reopen it when it’s deemed safe.
