YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. - Groundbreaking for a new, $27 million Old Faithful Visitor Education Center at Yellowstone National Park is set for May.
The two-story, 26,000-square-foot structure will be built on the site of the small, outdated visitor center that was demolished last summer. A temporary visitor center is in place while construction is under way.
The new facility is expected to open to the public by the fall of 2010 and serve 2.6 million visitors every year.
