The town of Estes Park was dealt a harsh blow in the recent rain and subsequent flooding that hit Colorado’s Front Range. The town is still essentially cut off, with few ways in and out. For a town dependent on tourism, limited access means fewer dollars being spent.
As the remaining flood survivors continue to be airlifted out of towns cut off by flooding, the focus is beginning to shift to recovery. Specifically on the very reason they have to be airlifted: roads.
