Possible human remains found in northern Arizona

MEADVIEW, Ariz. — Construction crews paving a road to the Grand Canyon
Skywalk have uncovered what authorities say appear to be human remains.

Authorities say a small pile of bones were found near a road’s edge Monday.

Bureau of Land Management spokeswoman Deborah Stevens says environmental
consultants have been called in to perform a cultural inventory.

She says the remains have been there for some time and could be part of a
burial site.

The BLM is collaborating with the Hualapai tribe to see if the area is a
historical gravesite.

The area has been used for thousands of years by American Indians and others
for farming, hunting, ceremonies and other activities.

Construction has stopped in the area where the remains were uncovered, but work
is continuing on the rest of the roadway.
