Grand Canyon airport to get minor face lift

TUSAYAN, Ariz. -- Arizona is withdrawing a plan to expand the terminal at the airport just south of Grand Canyon National Park.

The decision comes after the Federal Aviation Administration told the state Department of Transportation that it would need an environmental assessment before adding 2,000 square feet to the terminal.

Department spokesman Ryan Harding said the state determined that the assessment wasn't worth the effort or money. The expansion would have created a waiting area for passengers who had been cleared through security.

The department still planned to replace the existing 8,850-square foot terminal to allow for commercial flights into the area, which would require a review of environmental impacts.

For now, Harding said the department will give the nearly 50-year-old terminal a minor face lift.
