LOCAL RESIDENTS, EMERGENCY SERVICES AND EMPLOYEES will be allowed access from Grimes Canyon (PM 42) to Lucia (PM 23), as long as conditions allow.
LOCALS now have access to and from Ragged Pt. to Pitkins (PM 21.3). There are still multiple slides between Mud Creek (PM 8.8) and Paul’s Slide (PM 21.6).
but LOCALS needing access will be allowed in between.
