The Colorado Department of Transportation was doing work in Glenwood Canyon on Thursday removing water tanks.

A helicopter out of Rifle was working in the Grizzly Creek area, removing irrigation tanks.

The tanks were spring feed, and were removed due to not being required anymore. The tanks were 8,500 and 6,500 gallons and were located on Forest Service land.

The tanks were last used in the early 1990s when the Glenwood Canyon highway project was under way, according to CDOT spokeswoman Nancy Shanks.

The Glenwood Canyon Bike Path has once again been closed. This closure is on the west end between the Shoshone Power Plant and the Hanging Lake Tunnel Rest Area due to water on the path, the Colorado Department of Transportation said in a press release.

CDOT Maintenance crews do not anticipate the path reopening for the next few days; the public may log on to http://www.cotrip.org for updates.
