Denver (AP) Buses accustomed to shuttling Denver-area gamblers to mountain casinos will have to take a steeper detour for the next few weeks. Their normal route through Clear Creek Canyon near Golden could be closed for up to a month following a rock slide Tuesday.
Authorities say they've also banned rafting, kayaking and
fishing in the area because of the potential for more slides.
Transportation officials say it will cost about $1 million
to clean up the rocks and repair U.S. Highway 6.
