KINGMAN, Ariz. (AP)  --  A Mohave County board is scheduled to weigh in on a dispute over a main road to the Grand Canyon Skywalk.

The Kingman Daily Miner reports that the Mohave County Board of Supervisors is slated Monday to discuss Diamond Bar Road, the best route from Las Vegas to the Hualapai Tribe's Grand Canyon West and Skywalk tourism attraction.

The tribe is building a new road that will eliminate some of the old dirt road's dangerous curves and provide a smoother ride to visitors.

The old road crosses Grand Canyon Ranch, which is owned by Nigel Turner. He put up a roadblock on the old road.

The County Public Works Department is asking the Board to abandon "any and all (county) interest over a public easement underlying the existing alignment of Diamond Bar Road" that crosses Grand Canyon Ranch.
