Carlsbad Caverns Elevator Repairs Delayed

Repairs to the broken Carlsbad Caverns National Park elevator will be delayed another couple of weeks. Park officials now say the primary elevator system is expected to begin repairs on June 15th. Work to repair and modernize the elevators started back in December. The elevator system also went down in 2015 when a six inch motor shaft sheared off. The elevator was supposed to be fixed this month and have not given a reason for the delay. A secondary elevator system is now in use.
