GOLDEN, Colo. — Friday brought good news for tubers: Restricted access on Clear Creek in Golden is being lifted.

The restrictions had limited waterway activities on Clear Creek since June 8 in Golden, from the Highway 6 bridge through Vanover Park. The restrictions, which banned all single-chambered inflated devices such as belly boats and inner tubes, were due to a high water flow rate in Clear Creek.

Golden police and the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office decided to lift the restrictions Friday, but officials still urged tubers to be cautious on the waters.
