From Grand Canyon Skywalk: Mediation talks fail in SkyWalk dispute; tribe may create temporary road

… The federal government contends that Turner never was given the right to approve road designs and has improperly built on the government’s easement.

The two sides met Thursday in mediation but left without coming to agreement. The impasse means a federal judge could hear a request from Turner for a temporary restraining order to halt the road project for at least 30 days. A hearing date hasn’t been set. …

This afternoon at the farmstand I met one of the guys working on the new road, just as a lost tourist asked about how to get to the Skywalk.  So I learned that the Hualapais are offering FREE rides from Frenchies and the tourists don’t have to pay the toll.   Halting the road work for 30 days sure would suck for Fan (the contractor) as a number of employees just relocated to Meadview for the project.
