Here’s the release from Reclamation (Ted Dunn):

Reclamation’s Curecanti Field Office announced today that the East Portal Road located east of Montrose is open after being closed for the winter months. The road, beginning at the junction with State Highway 347, provides access to the Gunnison River within the Curecanti National Recreation Area, the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, and Crystal Dam. The East Portal Road will remain open throughout the summer and fall until snow, ice, or rockslides make it unsafe for travel.
