Emergency Status
Jul 13

More evacuated residents can permanently return home at 3 p.m. today

Homeowners and residents who live on Timberline Road, Horseshoe Trail, Tungsten Road, Switzerland Trail off Boulder Canyon (near Horseshoe Trail), west along Ridge Road from the zero to 1100 block (generally west of Hurricane Hill) and Boulder Canyon between Nederland town limits and Hurricane Hill will be allowed to permanently return to their homes at 3 p.m. today.

The reason for the delay until 3 p.m. is that substantial fire fighting resources need to be pulled off of Boulder Canyon Road at Hurricane Hill, and the implementation of that movement will take until 3 p.m.

Other Road Information

  • Ridge Road remains closed from the 1200 block to the 2600 block.
  • Cold Springs Road in its entirety remains closed.
  • Boulder Canyon/SH119 will remain closed to all traffic between Hurricane Hill and Summer Road in order for fire operations to continue.
  • Boulder Canyon westbound beyond Sugarloaf is still a soft closure – residents will need ID/proof of residents

From Nederland, residents can drive east on 119 up to Hurricane Hill, and from Boulder, residents can drive west on 119 to Boulder Falls (Summer Access). No traffic will be allowed through the section from Boulder Falls to Hurricane Hill.
