Colorado River is now open for use

As of 9 a.m. Friday, the Colorado River is open, along with the Shoshone and Grizzly Creek rest areas.

The river was closed at the start of Grand Avenue bridge deconstruction. Currently, the pier is removed to the surface of the river. Additional concrete underwater will have to be removed in the coming days.
