Share/Save/Bookmark

CANON CITY, Colorado — Royal Gorge Bridge & Park will offer guided tours on weekends and holidays this summer as it rebuilds from last summer's fire.

The Canon City Daily Record reported Thursday (http://tinyurl.com/o93r6n6 ) the $23 million first phase of reconstruction is scheduled for completion in August.

The park has been closed since the June 11 fire, which destroyed 48 of 52 of the park's structures.

Mike Bandera, the park's general manager and vice president, says the reconstruction project is on schedule.

The first phase includes a 14,000 square-foot visitors center, a passenger train and a large children's play area.

Bandera says a formal grand opening will take place in the spring of 2015.
