GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - Portions of the Riverfront Trail in Grand Junction have been closed due to the Colorado River running higher and faster than normal for this time of year.

The Daily Sentinel reports (https://bit.ly/1WE9cJN ) that rainy weather in western Colorado has increased river levels, which are expected to grow in coming weeks as snow in the mountains melts with higher temperatures. As a result, two sections of the Grand Junction trail have been closed due to flooding.

Officials say there is no timeline for reopening the trails and that they will remain closed until the river levels drop.
