FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) A dude rancher has reached an agreement with the federal government over construction of a road that leads to the Grand Canyon Skywalk.

Nigel Turner said he won’t charge visitors for traveling on the road that crosses his property. He had imposed a toll on Diamond Bar Road earlier this year, fueling outrage from the Hualapai Tribe that runs the Skywalk.

The tribe turned to the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs for a bypass road. Turner argued in federal court that the construction harmed his ranch guests and didn’t comply with a 2007 settlement over amenities for a new road.

A judge’s order gives the BIA a temporary easement for road construction. The agency also must give Turner notice before opening up the new road to public use.
