Governor Basin (07/29/2022)
From Ouray County Road and Bridge ‼️ CR361 UPDATE: 7/28 3:50PM Much progress was made today in the clearing of debris from County Road 361, specifically in the Senator Gulch area where a critical Hilfiker wall and culvert were significantly damaged in yesterday’s mudslide. After consulting with the contractor of the Hilfiker wall, it was determined that this area would not suffer from a catastrophic failure if we receive more rains this weekend. Water flow has been restored through the culvert at Senator Gulch and along with the progress made in clearing multiple debris fields, Road and Bridge has decided to RE-OPEN County Road 361 / Camp Bird Road / Yankee Boy Basin / Imogene Pass for the weekend. The road will re-open in the next couple hours and there will be two bulldozers continuing to work into the early evening. There is approximately 1000 cubic yards of rock that needs to be moved and cleared so please be patient with crews if you encounter them. Please note, County Road 361 / Camp Bird Road / Yankee Boy Basin / Imogene Pass (on Ouray County side) will be CLOSED on Monday, August 1, for repairs to the damaged road. Please continue to follow us for more updates. We appreciate your patience while we have worked through this today.
