Nighttime travelers should anticipate 30-minute delays as crews stripe the Gros Ventre Roundabout in Grand Teton National Park.

Work started this week with striping planned for between 10 p.m. and 2 a.m. Monday and Tuesday, but it was not able to take place as scheduled last week due to poor weather conditions, park officials said in a news release.

Due to cooler temperatures, road-stripe paint applied at night takes longer to dry than in the daytime. Travelers are advised to drive slowly and maintain the recommended speed limit.

Also this week, park pathways will be closed in five phases, beginning at the Gros Ventre Roundabout and proceeding north to Jenny Lake. Each phase is anticipated to last one day and all work is weather dependent. Closures on the pathway will begin and end at major access points or turnouts along the road for visitor and vehicle access.

The unpaved section of the Moose-Wilson Road will be closed beginning at 4 a.m. Tuesday through 8 a.m. Thursday for dust abatement.

Elsewhere in the park, travelers will continue to see chip sealing and pavement work on Highway 89 from the South Gate of Yellowstone to south of Moran Junction.
