CROWLEY, Texas — The two main arteries that supply tourists to Estes Park, Colo., have been closed by recent floods and are not likely to reopen for weeks, if not months. The damaged arteries include U.S. 36 between Lyons and Estes Park and U.S. Highway 34 from Loveland through the Big Thomas Canyon. Until those roads are rebuilt, tourists will have a harder time getting in and out of Estes Park because they will have to take secondary roads and more circuitous routes.
The Estes Park KOA did not sustain any damage during the recent flood, but park owners Jim & Ruth Turner said their campground and other Estes Park businesses will suffer greatly until the roads are repaired and tourists can easily venture in and out of Estes Park.
But as the Turners and other businesses look ahead to the 2014, they are getting some marketing help from AGS/Texas Advertising, which is donating the Estes Park KOA’s 2014 site map complete with merchant advertising.
“We wanted to do something to help the Estes Park KOA and the businesses that sponsor its site map as Estes Park works to rebuild the main highways leading into the city. Many of the local businesses did sustain flood damage and the least we could do is helping them with complimentary marketing & publishing for 2014,” said Brian Schaeffer, CEO of AGS/Texas Advertising.
