Bandelier National Monument opens at noon today after being closed for the past 16 days because of the government shutdown.

The Bandelier Shuttle from the White Rock Visitor Center will not be in operation until 10 a.m. Friday.

Bandelier spokesperson Claudia Brookshire said those interested in coming out to the park can drive in today.

“We just took the morning to get back up and running,” Brookshire said. “We had the flooding prior to the shutdown and maintenance is still working on cleaning up.”

Brookshire said Alcove House is closed but the rest of the park is open.
