Albuquerque Journal - - BUSINESS -

GRAND CANYON NA­TIONAL PARK, Ariz. — Fed­eral of­fi­cials want to de­mol­ish and re­build an ag­ing lodg­ing com­plex at Grand Canyon Vil­lage on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.

An open house is sched­uled Wed­nes­day on the pro­posal to re­place the sixbuild­ing Maswik South com­plex, which was built in 1971 and which the Na­tional Park Ser­vice says has ex­ceeded its “ex­pected use­ful life of 40 years.” The project would in­clude re­plac­ing the com­plex’s cur­rent 90 rooms with up to 120 rooms and con­struct­ing a half-mile (0.8 kilo­me­ter) of new road to im­prove traf­fic flow.

The park ser­vice said it is seek­ing pub­lic com­ment as it pre­pares an en­vi­ron­men­tal as­sess­ment to de­velop and eval­u­ate al­ter­na­tives for the project.
