Golden Gate Canyon Road access update

Golden Gate Canyon Road remains closed to non-local traffic between Catamount and Crawford Gulch. It is open to all canyon area residents between the hours of 7 a.m. and 9 a.m., and again between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. During times outside those windows, local traffic will require a deputy escort to travel through the canyon.

This change is effective now.

Earlier today, the road was not open to motorists who live outside of the Catamount/Crawford Gulch boundaries. Commuters and those who normally travel through the canyon were advised to find an alernate route, in order to minimize traffic between the roadblocks.

Please have ID available when traveling through.
