Historic Old Fall River Road, the popular historic one-way dirt road from the east side of Rocky Mountain National Park to the Alpine Visitor Center, was damaged by avalanches during the spring of 2011. This repair project will start on Monday, June 17. Old Fall River Road will be closed completely to all uses, 24-hours/day, from June 17 through July 2. Closure signs will be placed at the Alpine Visitor Center and the gate at Endovalley. The project involves heavy equipment and moving large rocks to repair the retaining wall.  Therefore, it is necessary to close the area to public use including hiking and cycling during this period.
