Minutes after several agencies broke ground on the new Summit House atop Pikes Peak on June 4, Jim Johnson outlined the challenge his construction company would have in building the new complex.

"We do like challenges, and every project is unique," said Johnson, who’s CEO of GE Johnson. "We start blasting again on [June] 26th, and you’ll see a full summer of activity."

A strong storm halted traffic from both visitors and workers on the mountain Tuesday, but construction actually hasn’t been all that active this summer.
