CDOT are working on information to share about the road conditions in lower Coal Creek Canyon. We will share that when it is available. Until then please drive carefully as we all get re-acquainted with this road, and get used to it’s new normal.
No doubt everybody will be curious to see what is new, what has changed, and to try to identify signs of the initial flash flood. That said, please keep your focus on the road, and your fellow Canyonite travelers. There could easily be slow downs, lane closures and heavy equipment causing abrupt changes in traffic flow. Safety first.
One very important note from Jefferson County Sheriff. Speed limit in lower Coal Creek Canyon is to be 30 miles an hour. This speed limit will be strictly enforced for the safety of all.
