Work Underway to Make Timpanogos Cave Safer

Timpanogos Cave National Monument is a popular cave system near Provo in northern Utah. KSL has this report on work to remove a rock overhang above the cave exit. Below are excerpts.

The operation is intended to eliminate the risk that the slab will fall on visitors near the cave's exit. Part of the overhang is directly above the cave's sheltered exit.

Officials at Timpanogos Cave National Monument wanted to make sure the blasting is done before the cave opens for the season on May 8.

Cave officials are also planning to build a new set of stairs and a sturdier roof near the cave's exit.

The National Park Service says the caves and cave trail will open on Saturday May 8, 2010 for the season. Please note the caves and cave trail will be closed June 2-3, 2010 for trail maintenance.
