“Public safety and access are very important,” said Canyon Country District Manager Lance Porter. “We are working with our partners to repair the damage as quickly as possible.”
The Grand County Road Department has made repairs to the Mineral Bottom Road accessing the boat ramp, but advises using high clearance four-wheel-drive vehicles when traveling further south toward the Canyonlands National Park boundary. The roads to Bartlett Wash and Poison Spider are also damaged, but currently passable with high clearance vehicles, BLM officials said. The Long Canyon Road near Moab is currently impassable.
Canyon pour offs and flooding damaged both King’s Bottom Campground on Kane Creek Road and Williams Bottom Campground on the Potash Road.
