Next news: The tunnel is now closed

Thank goodness the Colorado Department of Transportation doesn’t suffer from the same paranoia that the Denver Water board members are stricken with. If they did, I’m sure they would have long ago closed the Eisenhower/Johnson tunnels.

How difficult would it be to have bad, really bad things happen inside the tunnel?

Not having that lifeline would obviously be devastating to our economy. Yes, there are alternatives but those would be overwhelmed. CDOT is certainly aware of all the risks, yet they don’t hide behind the curtain of fear as the arrogant cowards running DWB seems to be doing.

The Glory hole, I suspect would be the most vulnerable part of the dam. Do you think that some buoys strung togeather with a cable that is emerged in the water is actually going to stop a fast moving boat packed with explosives? Oh I forgot, you hired a guard to stand watch with a bullhorn and maybe a side arm ” I don’t have a sinister mind yet I can figure that out. You better reconsider boating activity on the lake because I would sure hate to see your nice green lawns turn brown.
