Phase 1 of the the Royal Gorge Bridge & Park rebuild is set to quietly reopen to the public Aug. 28, more than 14 months after the Royal Gorge Fire ravaged through the park on a hot, windy day in June 2013.

A larger, more celebratory grand re-opening likely will take place in May 2015, when the three phases of the park are complete.

The fire spared only four of the park's 52 structures. Because they are rebuilding from the ground up, Mike Bandera, Royal Gorge Bridge & Park general manager and vice president, said the last year has been "very, very hectic" for him and his staff.

"It has been non-stop," he said Friday. "Six or seven days a week with continuous decision making from architectuals to demolition contractors to construction firms to new rides, shows and attractions."
