A three-month renovation project is near completion and new exhibits will be ready here by mid-March.
Al Hendricks, superintendent of the park on the Utah-Nevada border, said the project will update exhibits and expand the emphasis on interpretive exhibits in the visitor center. Exhibits are drawn from Lehman Caves, the park and throughout the Great Basin.Work began in October, and the visitor center was shut in November.
The Harpers Ferry Design Center of the National Park Service is coordinating the building and exhibit design. The project also includes consolidation of office space.
Although the visitor center has been closed, Lehman Caves are and will continue to be open, Hendricks said. Information is given to visitors and guided tours are conducted through the caves. The tours will continue at 9 and 11 a.m. and 2 and 4 p.m. daily throughout the winter. Camping facilities are also available at the Lower Lehman Creek Campground.
