Eagle County on Thursday issued the following press release on a temporary closure of High Road in Red Cliff:

High Road in the Town of Red Cliff will be closed beginning Monday, August 22 for workers to perform rockfall mitigation on the cliff face above High Road. The closure is anticipated to remain in effect until Friday, August 26.  Traffic will be directed to use Water Street to bypass the project location. The designated detour route will be marked with road signs.
