JEMEZ SPRINGS, N.M. (KRQE) – The Gilman Tunnels in the Jemez Mountains are back open.

The popular area has been closed since June so crews could remove loose rock and stabilize the cliffs around the tunnels. This, following several near misses with large boulders falling into the roadway.

Officials say even though they’ve improved safety measures visitors are still encouraged to use caution.
