East Portal Road open to public

The East Portal Road to the Gunnison River is now open.

The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation this morning said the road, which offers access to Crystal Dam, the Gunnison River within the Curecanti National Recreation Area and the Blcak Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, will remain open throughout the summer unless weather or rock slides make the road unsafe.

The road has a 16-percent grade and no vehicles longer than 22 feet are allowed.

The East Portal Road begins at the entrance station to the South Rim of the Black Canyon, east of Montrose. A national parks pass or fee is required to access the road.

Information:Ted Dunn, 240-6300.
