Royal Gorge bridge reopening pushed back

CANON CITY, Colo. (AP) - The reopening of the Royal Gorge Bridge has been pushed back after the Canon City Council refused to approve plans for reconstructing buildings destroyed by a June fire.

Bridge employees had been confident preliminary drawings of the layout and buildings for the park designed by Denver-based Beck Group would be approved and they could get started soon.

According to the Pueblo Chieftain, the council decided to put off a vote until its Nov. 4 meeting.

Councilman Dennis Weid says the city wants to take a long look instead of just getting it open.
