State Highway 325 roadbank collapse

Rifle Gap State Park and Rifle Falls Fish Hatchery will remain inaccessible until further notice following a roadbank collapse that  destroyed a lane of Colorado Highway 325 north of Rifle.

According to the Colorado Department of Transportation, a 200 feet-long by 12-foot wide section of the northbound lane sloughed off Friday, significantly limiting access to the area.

Anyone planning to visit Rifle Falls or the Rifle Falls Fish Hatchery is asked to avoid the area and make alternative plans.

Colorado Parks and Wildlife will advise campers planning to stay at the park about the status of their reservation, and help find alternative locations for recreation.
