Road to Grand Canyon’s North Rim reopens Friday

GRAND CANYON NATIONAL PARK – The main roadway leading to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon is set to reopen on Friday morning for the summer season.

Grand Canyon National Park officials say all North Rim facilities, including the historic Grand Canyon Lodge North Rim, will also reopen on Friday.

Arizona State Route 67 leading to the North Rim was closed on Dec. 1 for the winter season. Most facilities closed on Oct. 15 and are set to close on Oct. 16 this year.

Rim operations also include camping, camper services, food services, groceries and a service station. Park rangers present daily programs.

The more popular South Rim of the canyon stays open year-round.

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
