  • Moenkipi Development opens travel center on Hopi

    By Stan Bindell
    Moenkopi, Arizona (NFIC)

    Moenkopi Travel Center held a grand opening May 2 as it unfurled a complex that can bring an economic boost to the area. The travel center includes a convenience store, a gas station, the Tuuvi Cafe, Taco del Mar, a carwash and four Native American artisan shops. The complex is owned by the Moenkopi Development Corp., which is an arm of Upper Moenkopi Village.

    The travel center is located at the intersection of Arizona 264 and U.S. Rt. 160. The travel center was financed by $6.3 million. The U.S. Housing and Urban Development gave $1.2 million, the U.S. Department of Agriculture supplied $199,000 and the Moenkopi Development Corp. borrowed $4.67 million from Compass Bank.
