YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. (AP) — The National Park Service has decided that Verizon Wireless can build a 100-foot tall cell tower near Fishing Bridge in Yellowstone National Park.

A permit clearing the way for construction of the new cell tower was recently approved by John Wessels, the director of the Park Service Intermountain Region. Cell phone service originating from inside Yellowstone is currently limited to the Mammoth, Old Faithful, Canyon, Tower-Roosevelt and Grant developed areas.

The new cell tower will cover the developed area on the north side of Yellowstone Lake. The Park Service says the tower won’t be visible from the nearby Lake Hotel, Fishing Bridge, Lake Lodge Historic Districts as well as area hiking trails.
