Christo's Over The River project, which calls for draping huge fabric panels from cables over parts of the Arkansas River, will be carefully scrutinized for its potential impact on traffic on U.S. 50 — just like any other huge project, Colorado Department of Transportation officials said today. The $50 million art installation is being attacked by a group from Cañon City as being dangerous, especially to anyone living near the headwaters of the Arkansas River and in Bighorn Sheep Canyon. The group, Rags Over the Arkansas River (ROAR), offered their objections to the state Transportation Commission today.
