BANDELIER NATIONAL MONUMENT ON-GOING PAVEMENT PROJECT

Bandelier National Monument will temporarily be closing the Juniper Campground to allow road crews to resurface the roads, parking lots and campsite pull-ins.  The closure will begin Monday, September 16 and remain closed through September 25.  Juniper Campground will reopen September 26 in time for the Bandelier Night Sky Fiesta on September 27-28. 

In addition to the campgrounds, all of the park's paved roads and parking lots will receive the same resurfacing treatments, so visitors should plan for short delays along roadways in the park, and for traffic pattern changes to accommodate the road work.  The entire road resurfacing project is planned to be completed by October 4. Bandelier apologizes for the inconvenience while the roads receive some much needed attention.
