Ripon Bulletin - - Nation -

LAS VE­GAS (AP) — Of­fi­cials say there will be fewer Hoover Dam tours start­ing next month as work be­gins on ren­o­va­tions to the vis­i­tor cen­ter and guest elevators at the iconic struc­ture.

The U.S. Bureau of Recla­ma­tion, which op­er­ates the dam, an­nounced Tues­day that the con­struc­tion will be­gin Oct. 1 and con­tinue for about four months.

The Las Ve­gas Re­view-Jour­nal re­ports the pri­mary vis­i­tor cen­ter ex­hibit and other attractions will re­main open dur­ing the work, but only a limited power plant tour will be of­fered dur­ing that period.

Leonard C. Schilling, area man­ager of the Lower Colorado Dams Of­fice, said in a writ­ten state­ment that the tick­ets for the tour will be sold on a first-come, first-serve ba­sis. On­line ticket sales will be sus­pended dur­ing this time period.
