A FLASH FLOOD WATCH remains in effect for all of southern Colorado throughout our evening and overnight on Tuesday. Storms will continue to be an issue, capable of producing heavy rain with very slow movement. Storms look to mainly favor north and east of areas like Colorado Springs and the Waldo Canyon area, but storms cannot be ruled out still in this area. The 11 Breaking Weather team will be monitoring conditions closely. This Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through 6pm Wednesday, where another day of thunderstorms is possible. Head to the KKTV 11 Weather Tab for more information on the forecast for Wednesday and beyond.
Royal Gorge Bridge & Park officials plan to reopen the scenic tourist attraction in March after a wildfire gutted buildings and caused minor damage to the bridge in June.
The Royal Gorge Bridge and Park lost 48 of its 52 buildings in the blaze that shut down the suspension bridge 955 feet above the Arkansas River.
According to the Canon City Daily Record, crews are expected to break ground and begin pouring concrete in January.
Tours will be supervised on buses or shuttles so cars will not be driving through the park during reconstruction.
