GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado – Constructions crews working on the renovated Taco Bell will close 20th Street today through Friday.

The crews will be working on driveways, explained John Dahlman of Westec Construction, and hope to be finished before Friday if at all possible.

GOLDEN, Colorado – As part of President Obama’s proclamation that June is Great Outdoors Month, visitors will get a day to visit National Forest sites for free on June 11.

Rick Cables, regional forester, U.S. Forest Service Rocky Mountain Region, announced a fee-waiver day to celebrate National Get Outdoors Day on Saturday.

There are three fee-waiver days during 2011 that apply to U.S. Forest Service lands throughout the country:

• Get Outdoors Day: June 11, 2011

• National Public Lands Day: Sept. 24, 2011

• Veterans Day Weekend: Nov. 11-13, 2011

It is important for visitors to check with local offices prior to arriving to their destinations, as some sites will not participate in the fee-waiver program depending on how they are managed. For example, some sites managed by concession operators or listed on the National Recreation Reservation System, may not have the flexibility to honor the fee waiver.
