As the saying goes, there are two seasons in Jackson Hole — winter and road construction season. Since it's the latter, here are some roadwork updates for the week of Aug. 12, provided by Grand Teton National Park.
On the evenings of Monday and Tuesday, road work crews will begin striping around the Gros Ventre Roundabout. Work will take place between 10 p.m. and 2 a.m. Travelers should anticipate up to 30-minute delays. Due to cooler temperatures at night, road-stripe paint will take longer to dry than in the daytime. Work was not able to occur as scheduled last week due to poor weather conditions. Travelers are advised to drive slowly and maintain the recommended speed limit. Visitors can expect temporary delays and reduced speed limits.
Visitors are reminded that phased pathway closures will be taking place this week. Each phased closure is expected to last one day, weather permitting. Visitors can find a closure map and more park pathway information here.
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. Read more here.
Travelers will continue to see pavement preservation work on U.S. Highway 89/191/26 concurrently between the South Gate of Yellowstone and Moran Junction as well as south of Moran Junction. Visitors should anticipate up to 30-minute cumulative delays.
Visitors can call the Teton Park road information line at (307) 739-3682 or visit the park’s website, Facebook and Twitter accounts to get information about road work locations in the park.
