MOOSE, WY — Road improvement work will be underway at various locations across the southern portion of Grand Teton National Park during the first two weeks of August. This work will result in minor travel delays. Motorists are advised to call the road conditions line at 307.739.3614 for specific and current road 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 Dornans. The Windy Point turnout on the Teton Park Road will also be closed during this period of 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.
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.
