Boulder Canyon, Poudre Canyon rock, mud warning

Signs are up and the Colorado Department of Transportation has staged vehicles near Boulder and Poudre Canyon to be ready for rock and mud slides.

The steady rains this week have already caused some minor mud slides and rock fall in both canyons.

In Poudre Canyon, CDOT has been doing rock fall mitigation work and building larger culverts to handle the water and possible mud.

The High Park Fire left large areas of Poudre Canyon without vegetation, which makes the hillsides more likely to slide.
