Rock slide cuts off access to Dinosaur National Monument
A rock slide at Dinosaur National Monument has closed one of the major roads into the park near the town of Dinosaur.
In a news release late Monday afternoon, the National Park Service said a scenic portion of Harpers Corner Road about four miles from the Canyon Visitor’s Center was closed.
The National Park Service said the Dinosaur Quarry on the Utah side of the monument is unaffected by the rock slide.
Though the rock slide occurred on a weekday, May and June are important tourism months to the monument. The release did not specify how long it might take to reopen the road.
For more information, contact the park at 435-781-7700.
“There is no estimate on reopening time,” Monday’s release said.
The Colorado Public Utilities Commission has filed a protest with federal regulators seeking to block the bid by the power provider for rural electric cooperatives to jump from state to federal oversight.
