With landscape boulders and stonework set in place, workers are now completing the pavement in the Bright Angel Trailhead rehabilitation project. This includes concrete portions of the trailhead plaza and the remaining footpaths. The project, which began last September, is on schedule and should becompleted by mid May. The work includes a 90 car paved parking lot around the Bright Angel Lodge cabins; an ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) accessible Rim Trail connection between the Hermits Rest Route Transfer shuttle bus stop and the Kolb Studio; reconstruction of stone masonry retaining walls near the Kolb Studio and near the southwest trailhead of the Bright Angel Trail; new restrooms and a meeting plaza with shade structures; and burial of utilities.
