Kansas Guard Headed To Colorado To Fix Highway
BOULDER, Colo. (AP) – Members of the Kansas National Guard are headed to Colorado to fix a key highway damaged in last month’s flooding.
The soldiers are expected to leave for Boulder on Wednesday and remain in Colorado for about three weeks.
They will replace members of the Utah National Guard who have been repairing U.S. Highway 36 leading to Rocky Mountain National Park.
Colorado is paying for the work because of the federal government shutdown, but hopes to be reimbursed after the budget standoff ends.
