Minor travel delays are likely as workers will be making road improvements at various locations across the southern portion of Grand Teton National Park during the first two weeks of August.
In a statement released by the park’s public affairs office, officials advised motorists to call a road conditions hotline at 307-739-3614 for the latest information.
August 5th to August 10th: Chip seal work will take place on the Teton Park Road from Taggart Lake trailhead to Moose Junction, and on the road to the Chapel of Transfiguration and the access road to Dornan’s at Moose. The Windy Point turnout on the Teton Park Road will also be closed during this time. Travelers should expect 15-minute delays in each of these areas.
August 9th to August 16th: Chip seal work will take place on Sagebrush Drive, Antelope Flats Road, Gros Ventre Road and Teton Science Schools’ Road. Motorists should expect 15-minute delays in each of these areas.
Efforts will be made to minimize any inconvenience to drivers using park roads; however, motorists are encouraged to plan for extra travel time to reach their destinations. Travelers should also anticipate delays over the weekends.
Schedules may change or be delayed due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.
Park officials said that chip sealing and other roadwork is necessary to provide routine maintenance, as well as improve safety, for the many vehicles that use park roads throughout the year.
