Pilgrim Creek Road Closed June 11-14 for Construction

The Pilgrim Creek Road between Jackson Lake Lodge and Colter Bay Village will be closed to all public access Tuesday, June 11 through Friday, June 14 while a contractor hauls gravel and stages it along the side of the unpaved road. 

Work on this project will begin in early July, when the road gets covered with approximately four inches of new gravel. This work is necessary to maintain a serviceable roadbed. During spring runoff the road gets washed out, degrading conditions over time. 

Park visitors are advised to plan ahead if they intended to travel on the Pilgrim Creek Road. To alert motorists of the road closure, there will be marked barricades shortly after the unpaved road begins. Parking will not be permitted between the main park road and the marked barricades. 

Roadwork schedules may change, or be delayed, due to weather, equipment malfunction or other extenuating circumstances. 

For current road conditions, contact the Grand Teton road information hotline at 307.739.3614.

Did You Know?

Mt. Moran in July

Did you know that the black stripe, or dike, on the face of Mount Moran is 150 feet wide and extends six or seven miles westward? The black dike was once molten magma that squeezed into a crack when the rocks were deep underground, and has since been lifted skyward by movement on the Teton fault.
