Repair begins on Carlsbad Caverns elevators

News

CARLSBAD, N.M. (KRQE) – Work has begun on the elevators at Carlsbad Caverns.

The broken elevators require visitors to go on a steep mile-long trek to the main cave by foot. It’s been that way since November.

Now the Illinois company working on the elevators has gotten started and if all goes according to plan work should be done Memorial Day Weekend.
