After Wildfire, Royal Gorge Bridge Still Closed

Listen Now

A popular tourist spot could reopen later this month, at least partially, after a destructive wildfire. The Royal Gorge Bridge and Park near Canon City has been shut down since a forced evacuation June 11th. That’s meant a lot of lost revenue, and a lot of lost jobs. Around 150 seasonal employees remain laid off. The property damage alone add up to more than 30 million dollars. Let’s get an update from Royal Gorge spokeswoman Peggy Gair.
