Parks spokesman Brad Meyer said signs and barricades went up Thursday afternoon to cordon off the 35 closed acres in the 384-acre park. He said fossil-hunting permits will be suspended for at least two weeks, but the length of the closure will depend on the outcome of an investigation into the accident.
