Travel Delays to Occur on Teton Park Road
Contact: Public Affairs Office, 307.739.3393
A brief travel closure on the section of Teton Park Road that crosses over Jackson Lake dam in Grand Teton National Park will occur on Tuesday, September 10, Tuesday, September 17 and Thursday, September 19. This temporary delay will take place between 7:30 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. and last for 30 to 45 minutes.
The brief closure is scheduled to accommodate the staging of materials needed for routine maintenance on a section of Jackson Lake dam—a structure managed by the Bureau of Reclamation.
Local residents and park visitors are advised to plan ahead and use an alternate route because this temporary closure prevents the ability to make a 'through trip' on the Teton Park Road between Jackson Lake Junction and Signal Mountain Lodge. Travelers can also plan to simply wait for the 30 to 45 minutes that the road section is closed.
For current information on road closures and other road conditions in Grand Teton National Park or the John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway, please call 307.739.3614.
