Official Public Information Map
Keep up with up-to-date road closures, evacuation areas, and other important information with the official Public Information Map.
As assessments are completed, the evacuation status of an area will be updated to allow residents to return home. Only residents will be allowed re-entry back into areas that have been deemed safe. If individuals park and/or walk into areas that have not been cleared for re-entry, the clearance process will take longer as it will divert resources from their mission and can hinder response to new emergencies. Please continue to be patient as we work to get areas open as quickly as possible and please respect the closures.
If you evacuated and have questions about the status of your property, call 303-413-7730. Do not call 911. A preliminary list of damaged and destroyed homes can be found here.
