Does that mean Argentine is inaccessible?

Does that mean access to Argentine is inaccessible?

That would be my guess. :confused:

Went up Argentine yesterday... the sign through Georgetown just read that it was closed from 5am to 11am?? and from 1pm to 3pm. Other than that it was one lane from Georgetown to the turn off of Argentine Pass, the rest after that was normal.

Now it is apparently closed 24/7. There is a serious rock slide problem. 2 weeks just to get things planned and staged to fix it, then who knows how long to fix.

Said it is closed from Georgetown up to the lakes. The top is still open from 285.

Georgetown,Colo. (August 26, 2009) – Approximately five miles of the Guanella Pass Road has been reopened from Georgetown to the Clear Lake day-use area but, the road remains closed between the Clear Lake day-use area and the Clear Lake Campground.



After further assessment, the Forest Service and the Clear Creek County Commissioners have decided this part of the road is safe for travel.



Guanella Pass and the Clear Lake Campground can be accessed through Grant,Colo .from U.S. Highway 285. Please note that travelers cannot get through to Georgetown or to Interstate 70 from U.S. Highway 285.



Because of the road closure, the concessionaire at Clear Lake and Guanella Pass Campgrounds has decided to close for the season on Thursday, August27.
