 The National Park Service has announced a Public Open House Meeting regarding the South Rim Roads Improvement Project on Wednesday January 10th from 4 pm - 6 pm at the Shrine of the Ages.  The project began January 2nd.


Per NPS: During this first phase of construction, Village Loop Road between the west end of Bright Angel Lodge parking lot and the south end of the Maswik Lodge complex will be closed and detours will be in place. Traffic from the El Tovar Hotel to the west end of the Bright Angel Lodge parking lot will become two-way traffic. To accommodate this, there will be no street-side parking for visitors or residents near the El Tovar, Kachina, Thunderbird, and Bright Angel lodges, Colter Hall, or the Train Depot. Buses and oversize vehicles will be able to turn around using the Bright Angel Lodge parking lot.

Hermit Road will remain open via a detour from Maswik Lodge. To access Hermit Road and viewpoints, Hermits Rest, and the Hermit Trail, traffic will be rerouted from Maswik Lodge Road to Rowe Well Road. Detour signs will be in place. The Village Route shuttle bus will continue to operate and the timetable and stops may be adjusted. Informational signs will be posted at the bus stops.
