CARLSBAD, N.M. (KRQE) – Work continues at the Carlsbad Caverns National Park which has been closed for a few days.

KRQE News 13 learned the caverns and visitors center is now open, but the 9-mile loop in the park is still closed.

The road became impassable because of high water and debris over the weekend.

The hope is that the road will be clear later Tuesday. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
