Tourists who had been denied access on the main road to the Grand Canyon Skywalk now have a way to get to the glass bridge, be it through a bypass route or a rancher's checkpoint.
The Hualapai Tribe, which operates the Skywalk, received a federal permit to create a quarter-mile route that will run adjacent to Nigel Turner's ranch. A spokesman said it would be complete Tuesday.
The temporary right of way separates traffic from heavy equipment being used to pave the stretch of Diamond Bar Road. It also allows tourists to avoid a fee Turner had imposed to drive through his property.
Turner had shut down part of the road last week. He said he has reopened it and lowered the fee from $20 per person to $5 per car.
