Phoenix officials will re-open Steele Indian School Park at 6 a.m. Wednesday, nearly two weeks after it was closed to the public while federal agents investigated a mid-air helicopter collision July 27 that left four journalists dead.
Investigators have been on-site gathering evidence from the wreckage to figure out what caused two news helicopters to crash. Phoenix police and city Parks and Recreation staff conducted a final sweep of the park today, officials said.
Park entrances at 3rd Street, 7th Street and Central Avenue will be open. But the crash site, which extends north from Indian School Road to the historic buildings, will be closed to the public to allow for restoration and landscaping.
