KKTV 11 News reporter Gina Esposito got a first hand look Tuesday at the reconstruction effort after the Royal Gorge Fire.

Crews are hurrying to build new facilities like a new visitor center and zipline before summer. The wildfire last year destroyed 48 of the park's 52 buildings.

The iconic Royal Gorge Bridge was not damaged in the fire.

Congressman Doug Lamborn also took the tour around the park.
