Projects in the works at the Colorado National Monument

By  | 

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KJCT)-- The National Park Service completed more than $600 million dollars worth of repair work, and the Colorado National Monument is a part of that.

It is one of the largest amounts of maintenance done to a national park in a single year, but there’s more work to be done.

The monument is currently working on repairing pipelines, road work and even restoring an Amphitheatre.

There is no timeline on when these repairs will be complete, but officials say they are constantly working on them.

One visitor says he believes maintaining the monument is extremely important.

“I’ve been to most places, actually over the United States, and this so far, I just drove in but this ranks as among the best I’ve seen. It really is amazing. The beauty is amazing, the road is great," says Pennsylvania Resident Dick Bach.

The Colorado National Monument Association helps fundraise for these projects, and there’s also taxpayers money.

The Monument also charges an entry-fee and some of that money does go towards maintaining it.
