BOULDER, Colo. — At noon on Friday, the City of Boulder will reopen Boulder Creek from Boulder Falls to Broadway, the city announced.

Public safety officials believe that this section of Boulder Creek will be safe for kayakers, swimmers, and tubers after the heavy equipment that was being used to remove sediment and debris is moved to other drainage ways.

The announcement came days after the entirety of the creek was closed to clear out flood debris and other hazards.

Contractors will continue removing debris and sediment east of Broadway, and that section of Boulder Creek will remain closed to recreational use, the city said. As flood recovery work progresses, other sections of Boulder Creek will be reopened when the city and county deem that it is safe for public use.
