Planned Left­hand Canyon Drive clo­sure de­layed B

boul­der county» A planned Mon­dayTues­day clo­sure of Left­hand Canyon Drive at Glen­dale Gulch has been post­poned be­cause of un­safe work­ing con­di­tions, ac­cord­ing to county of­fi­cials.

The cul­vert in­stal­la­tion is one of the last re­pairs needed to com­plete the year-long, $19.3 mil­lion project to re­pair stretches of Left­hand Canyon Drive and seg­ments of Left Hand Creek dam­aged in the Septem­ber 2013 flood.

Open space pro­gram re­ceives largest do­na­tion

B pitkin county» A $100,000 per­sonal check showed up early last week in the of­fice of Dale Will, ac­qui­si­tions di­rec­tor for the Open Space and Trails Pro­gram. It ar­rived in a small en­ve­lope with a hand­writ­ten ad­dress on the front, which Will said he ini­tially thought might be a hol­i­day card.

But when he opened it, he found the check and a note in­di­cat­ing the donor, who wants to re­main anony­mous, wanted the money to be put to­ward the pur­chase of the last de­vel­opable piece of the Hunter Creek Val­ley, Will said.

Open space of­fi­cials had been ne­go­ti­at­ing for about a year with a man named Robert Small, who tracked down the heirs of the frac­tion­al­ized 10.4-acre min­ing claim and was able to gain ti­tle to it in a fed­eral law­suit. Will said open space of­fi­cials put the word out that they might need help buy­ing the prop­erty.
