Repair to the Sprague Lake Dam in Rocky Mountain National Park will begin next week. Sections of the Dam were damaged when large trees were uprooted during a major wind storm in 2011. Much of the area will still be accessible however a one third section of the trail on the northeast portion of Sprague Lake will be closed through the duration of the project. This aspect of the project is expected to be completed in late October.

Glacier Creek Stables has closed for the season. The road leading to the stables will be closed for the repair work. The park shuttle bus stop, located near the stables, will be temporarily relocated to the Sprague Lake picnic area throughout the remainder of the shuttle bus season, which ends October 9.
