UTAH COUNTY -- The Timpanogos caves attract thousands of visitors each year. Now officials say they need the public's help to keep it lit.

According to the Daily Herald, the cave is currently lit using eight power poles. The problem is those poles are getting old and need to be replaced. Rocky Mountain Power says the poles are no longer safe to maintain the lines.

In order to fix all of this, the National Park Service would like to install a new electrical line and fiber-optic line to the cave. The eight existing poles will be removed and the areas would be rehabilitated.

The Forest Service is looking for public comment on the plan from now until May 18.
