Study: Significant impacts in Christo Colo project

DENVER — Federal land managers say the artist Christo’s plan to drape fabric over several miles of the Arkansas River in Colorado would have a significant impact on bighorn sheep and historical sites.

The Bureau of Land Management released its draft environmental study today on Christo’s “Over the River” project.

Christo wants to use a system of anchors, frames and cables to suspend 5.9 miles of fabric across eight spots along a 42-mile stretch of the river.

The draft study says more than 3,500 acres would be disturbed.

The BLM studied six alternatives, including not carrying out the project. After a 30-day comment period and a series of public meetings, the BLM will decide which alternative it prefers. That decision isn’t expected until February.
