Grand Canyon, Ariz.– Construction will begin as early as January 2, 2018 at the Hermit Road interchange to resurface and improve the Hermit Road and Village Loop intersection.
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.
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 will continue to operate and the timetable and stops may be adjusted.
