The famous Royal Gorge Bridge and Park was gutted in the summer's Royal Gorge Fire, with 48 of 52 of the park's structures destroyed.

Monday, talk turns on how to begin the rebuilding process.

Canon City leaders are meeting with a construction firm Monday to discuss the new look of the park and how it will be rebuilt. The park said Friday that they were nearly done with demolishing all the damaged structures.

One structure that remains standing: the iconic Royal Gorge Bridge, which was left nearly unscathed in the fire.

We'll let you know what happen in Monday's meeting.
