Grand Canyon South Rim Roads Improvement Program
Starting on January 2, 2018, the Federal Highway Administration is resurfacing and improving several intersections and about 15 miles of roads at the South Rim. The resulting construction may cause delays, detours and some road closures while work is being completed. It is anticipated that the road work will be completed by July 25, 2019 with many improvements made throughout 2018. To get the most up-to-date information regarding the project, please go to the National Park Service’s dedicated page found here.
During the roadwork, all Grand Canyon National Park Lodges will remain open. Please be alert and follow any instructions given by park employees, rangers, or construction personnel during this project. For a map of the affected roads and for the full press release, please click here.
Avoid the Construction by Riding the Train
Due to the construction, heavy traffic may be encountered at times for those who choose to drive to the South Rim. Our sister company, Grand Canyon Railway & Hotel, offers daily trains from the historic town of Williams, Arizona directly to the South Rim. Experience the comfort of traveling to Grand Canyon National Park by train, witness all the beauty that northern Arizona provides through your window, and scratch having to worry about traffic or parking at the South Rim during your stay. Train packages that include lodging at one of the historic Grand Canyon National Park Lodges are available and can be found here.
