(KSL News) -- Some controversial signs at Utah's Rainbow Bridge will not have to be removed, thanks to a decision from the U.S. Supreme Court today.

The natural sandstone bridge is revered as a sacred site by many Native Americans. The National Park Service installed signs several years ago, suggesting that tourists respect native beliefs by not walking under the popular scenic attraction.

Even though the suggested policy was only voluntary, it provoked a lawsuit. Critics said the park service was mixing religion and government.

Today the Supreme Court refused to hear the case. That leaves the voluntary policy in place.
