Starting July 8, some neighborhoods will be open for re-entry. Estimated sequencing and timeframes are:

8 a.m. 
El Jebel Trailer Park

2 p.m.
Big Pinion and Little Pinion
Shadow Rock
Original Road, Pine Ridge and Sagewood Court
Hillcrest, Silverado, Two Rivers for access to Hillcrest.

Checkpoints will be in place for 24 hours following the opening. Residents will need to need to show either a re-entry badge or photo ID with a physical address each time for security purposes.

Representatives from Black Hills Energy will be in the neighborhood to assist you with getting gas service restored. Please do not attempt this on your own.

For those areas not mentioned, evacuations are still in effect. The official map will be updated as areas open: bit.ly/LakeChristineFire

UPDATE: Re-entry hours for Basalt High School will be from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm on July 8. If your ID does not have your physical address, be sure to pick up a re-entry tag!
