The National Guard will have a strong presence at the Big Bend National Park for the next 60 days.

For the next two months, 12 National Guardsmen will be repairing some badly eroded section of back country dirt roads.

Repairs began this week and will provide easier access and travel on river road.

Eroded sections have caused frequent closures during the past year this new work will assist the park in its long term maintenance of the backcountry access routes.
