Glenwood Canyon bike path open; no permanent damage
The Glenwood Canyon bike path is fully open again after high water in the Colorado River prompted several weeks of closure from Shoshone to Hanging Lake.
Colorado Department of Transportation crews completed maintenance and sweeping operations Monday. With Siloam Springs to Hanging Lake opened late last week, the path is ready for summer traffic with no further closures anticipated.
“We were pleased to see, beyond general maintenance and debris removal to get the path open, that there was no structural damage to areas where there has been in the past,” Adonna McDade-Ward, CDOT transportation maintenance supervisor, said in a news release.
In order to maintain pathway safety, CDOT reminds cyclists and pedestrians to obey all warning and closure signs. Visit http://www.cotrip.org to check on status of the bike path.

The Glenwood Hot Springs Lodge experienced vandalism in the form of significant water damage after a man removed a pipe valve with a fire extinguisher flooding four hallways. The lodge however remains open and operational.
