One of the country's most popular tourist attractions is getting to the core of a multi-million dollar upgrade.

The Rapid City Journal reports that major construction projects at the Mount Rushmore National Memorial in South Dakota are scheduled to begin next week.

Officials say the upgrades will make it easier to get around the park and provide clearer views of the sculpture, which features the faces of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt.
