Bryce Canyon National Park: Road Work – Bryce Canyon UT

Description

The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) performed road work in Bryce Canyon National Park from 1934-1941.  The CCC made grading improvements on the Rim Road (the 20 mile-long road through the park) and built service roads.  The exact locations of such work cannot be ascertained today, but the roads are still there.

The CCC also built parking lots at the Bryce Canyon Lodge and the headquarters building in 1936 and 1939.

The Works Progress Administration (WPA) did some road work as well, in 1938-1941.
