Old Fall River Road temporarily closed due to 8/28 hail

This picture of yesterday's hail in RMNP posted by the rangers is amazing. The storm temporarily closed Trail Ridge Road and Old Fall River Road is still closed today.

Are there any estimates for how long the road will be closed?

Rangers also said they would post updates on Twitter and Facebook. I suspect they are regrading parts of the road. It is dirt and the storm probably washed ruts into the road.

I just called and they said the re-opening depends on current weather as they need it to dry out. She said I could even call back this afternoon and they may have more info, but I will just watch the website.
