UPDATE: Cape Royal Road at Grand Canyon National Park Closed
All Other Roads Including Point Imperial Road Remain Open

Grand Canyon, AZ Grand Canyon National Park has started road improvements on Cape Royal Road on the North Rim. Heavy monsoonal weather and construction activities necessitate the immediate closure of the road to ensure visitor and worker safety. Effectively immediately, Cape Royal Road from the Y to the terminus at Cape Royal will be closed to all vehicle traffic through the end of the season.

All other roads including Point Imperial Road remain open to vehicle traffic through the end of the season. Point Imperial is the highest point on the North Rim and overlooks the Painted Desert and the eastern end of Grand Canyon.

For more information about visiting the North Rim please visit the park website.
