Grizzly bears and moose won’t be the only things creating traffic jams in Grand Teton National Park this week.
Construction work will lead to intermittent closures of the Teton Park Road across Jackson Lake Dam between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. today and Wednesday for a period of up to two hours for each closure, according to a National Park Service advisory.
During these times, travelers will not be able to make a through-trip on the Teton Park Road. Those wishing to access the northern part of Grand Teton or Yellowstone national parks should plan to take U.S. Highway 89/191/287.
Access to the Snake River, including the boat launch and fishing area below the dam, will be available north of Jackson Lake Dam.
The Upper Snake Field Office of the Bureau of Reclamation is calling for the temporary road closures on a periodic basis through Oct. 29 to perform crane work on the dam.
When additional closures are scheduled, they will be communicated via Grand Teton National Park’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
