Early morning and afternoon closures on the Colorado River due to the Grand Avenue bridge project ended faster than expected Tuesday.

As a result, put-ins at Shoshone, Grizzly Creek and No Name are open for public and private use. Boaters are encouraged to use caution when approaching the Grand Avenue bridge.

Closures from 4 a.m. to noon started Monday as crews started critical overhead work. The closures were initially expected to last through the week.

While the recent work was completed ahead of originally scheduled, boaters should expect similar delays in September.
