The east section of Boulder Creek is being reopened tonight between the Arapahoe Avenue bridge and 55th Avenue, city officials announced Friday.

Crews last month closed the creek to all swimming, tubing and kayaking to remove debris and make repairs after last September's floods. Since then, portions have been re-opened as work is completed.

Minor repairs continue, and city officials warned in a news release that new sediment and debris may wash into the city in the coming months. Officials warned recreational users to prepare for changing conditions and unmarked hazards.

Because higher-than-normal creek flows are anticipated during spring runoff, the city is monitoring Boulder Creek and will notify the public of any safety concerns. The creek is closed to recreational users when flows exceed 800 cubic feet per second, according to the release.
