Part of visitor center to be demolished

DINOSAUR — Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar announced a $13.1 million investment to demolish and replace condemned portions of the Quarry Visitor Center at Dinosaur National Monument.
Preliminary work for the Quarry Visitor Center has already begun. The National Park Service completed the environmental impact statement for the project in 2008 and finished design development this month. Work has begun on the construction drawings with the final documents anticipated by fall of this year. The National Park Service will award the construction contract in early 2010, and ground-breaking may be as early as next spring.
