Planning for the future will be no easy road for Arizona's Department of Transportation. But the path the agency's on now will fail to provide for the state's growing population and preserve the area's incredible natural resources.
Instead of focusing on smart public transit projects and roadway improvements to reduce traffic and pollution and create wildlife corridors, the agency is proposing to spend millions on an unnecessary airport expansion that would further burden Grand Canyon National Park.
The results are predictable and have been written across the land too many times: An expanded airport will bring more noise, cars, people and air pollution to the canyon -- and the development it would incentivize could permanently dry up sacred Havasu Falls and the park's many seeps and springs.
