Hanging Lake parking lot partially closed next week

January 16, 2014 - Northwestern Colorado/CDOT Region 3 - GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. – The White River National Forest and Colorado Department of Transportation want the public to know that the east half of the Hanging Lake parking lot will be closed Monday January 20.

The closure is necessary for a heavy crane to install a new cell communication site that will improve communications in the canyon.  The closure will also be in effect either Friday January 24 or Monday January 30 so that the crane can be moved out of the parking lot and the east half reopened.

The Hanging Lake Trail and all the Hanging Lake Rest Area facilities will remain open during the time that the east half of the parking lot is closed.
