The temporary closure of  Pilgrim Creek Road, located between Jackson Lake Lodge and Colter Bay Village, will be extended while a contractor continues to haul and stage gravel along the length of this unpaved road in preparation for an improvement project scheduled for July. This secondary road will be open to public access over the weekend of June 15-16, but will close from Monday, June 17 through Friday, June 21 to all access—including pedestrians—for safety concerns due to movement of heavy trucks. 

Park road crews will use the stockpiled gravel to resurface the road later in July. This work is necessary to maintain a serviceable roadbed that becomes rougher over time with spring runoff and summer traffic. 

There will be marked barricades shortly after the unpaved road begins to alert drivers of the public closure. Parking is not permitted between the main park road and the marked barricades to allow for access by the gravel trucks. 

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.
