#JeffcoFlood Road Updates: 9/17 5 PM


Upper Bear Creek Drive is now open to local residents.  There is a bridge located near 32034 Upper Bear Creek that is now closed (2.6 miles east of Evergreen).  This means that residents with an address of 31910 and lower must exit the area via Evergreen Parkway.  Residents with an address of 32034 and higher must exit through Witter Gulch (to Stagecoach Blvd or Squaw Pass).

In Kittredge, the bridge on Welch Ave, just south of Highway 74 has been closed due to structural concerns.  Residents can access the area through the other local bridges.

Golden Gate Canyon is open to all traffic.  Please continue to be aware of the emergency and construction traffic in the area. If you need to use Crawford Gulch Road be aware that intermittent closures may take place due to the need to provide road and bridge repair crews safe access to the area.

Twin Spruce / Gap road is open but there is a heavy amount of construction traffic in the area.  Please avoid the area unless absolutely necessary.  Twin Spruce is closed at Burland Drive.

Ongoing Closures:
Crescent Park in Upper Coal Creek Canyon is impassable.

Highway 72 remains closed from Blue Mountain Drive to Pincliffe.

Evergreen (74 and 73) remains open.

Beaver Brook Canyon road remains impassable.  Watch http://www.co.clear-creek.co.us/Alertcenter.aspx for updates.

Closures remain on Indiana between 120th and 72nd.

We will update our google map when we receive definitive word that any of these closure have been lifted.  Please continue to exercise care as you drive in the affected areas.
