A temporary structure has arrived at Timpanogos Cave National Monument to house restrooms, ticket sales, and visitor information services, Park Superintendent Sue McGill said.
The modular unit, constructed by Space Master Buildings in Boise, replaces the Visitor Center, which burned in February. The unit will be set in place at the old visitor center location, two miles up American Fork Canyon on U-92.The temporary facility will remain until such time as long-range planning can be completed and a new facility constructed.
Although the cave will remain open, visitors to the area May 21-25 should expect traffic congestion and delays, construction activities, and limited parking as crews set the building in place.
Park officials hope to have the building open to the public by June 1 at which time it will remain open from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. seven days a week throughout the summer. Visitors are reminded that advance ticket sales are available and recommended to avoid the inconvenience of delays.
