Summer road repair and rehabilitation projects begin next week in Grand Teton National Park and the John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway. This work will result in varying traffic delays during the 2013 travel season. 

North Park Road between Jackson Lake Lodge and the Flagg Ranch area will have 30-minute delays between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., 7 days per week from May-September. Because regular delays are expected on the North Park Road, motorists should plan for extra time to reach their destination -- whether traveling to or from Yellowstone National Park. 

Grassy Lake Road will have intermittent 15-minute delays from June-October during a gravel resurfacing project. 

Gros Ventre Road from Kelly Warm Springs to the east park boundary will have 15-minute delays during July for an asphalt overlay project.  

The following roads will have 15-minute delays during August for routine chip-seal work:

Teton Park Road from Moose to the Taggart Lake trailhead
Kelly Road from Gros Ventre Junction to Kelly
Antelope Flats Road
Sagebrush Drive
Dornans Road
Chapel of Transfiguration Road 

Construction schedules may change or be delayed due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances. Visitors are encouraged to call the road conditions line at 307.739.3614 or stop at park visitor centers for current and specific information. The park's newspaper, Grand Teton Guide, includes a road construction map and can be found online at www.nps.gov/grte or picked up at any park visitor center or entry station.

Did You Know?

Did you know that lodgepole pine trees grow on glacial moraines in Jackson Hole? Glacial moraines are ridges of rocky debris left behind as Ice Age glaciers melted. The soil on these ridges retains moisture and is more hospitable to trees than the cobbly, porous soil on the outwash plain.
