Grizzly Creek Road closed after culvert is washed out
U.S. Forest Service officials have closed Grizzly Creek Road in the Bears Ears area after a culvert washed out earlier this week. Grizzly Creek Road is closed about two miles from the intersection of Forest Service roads 116 and 118, about 20 miles north of Hayden in the Routt National Forest.
Officials advise motorists not to attempt to drive around the road closure because of risk of falling into a hole created by the washout. Officials said it will be at least a month before the road is repaired.

Veterans urged to apply for VA health system
The Routt County Veterans Affairs Office is encouraging local vets to apply for the VA health system. Local veterans affairs officers Michael Condie said a community-based outpatient clinic, or CBOC, for vets could be built in Craig if sufficient use is proven. Having a CBOC in Northwest Colorado would eliminate the need for many vets to travel to the Grand Junction VA medical facility.
