CANON CITY, Colo. (CBS4) – There has been another setback for Colorado’s recovery from this summer’s wildfires as the reopening of the Royal Gorge Bridge has been pushed back.

According to The Pueblo Chieftain, the Canon City City Council refused to approve plans for reconstructing buildings destroyed by the massive fire in June. Bridge employees were confident the drawings for the layout and park buildings would be approved so they could get back to work.

The council will take up the issue again on Nov. 4.
