A project to resurface a section of the road between Mammoth Hot Springs and Tower Junction has been delayed a week.

Work was originally set to start Tuesday, July 31 and run through Tuesday, August 7. The planned start of the project has been postponed until Monday, August 6. This road project is now set to run through Saturday, August 11.

Crews will use heavy equipment to remove and recycle the asphalt to repair the road surface. Motorists can expect delays or detours when the project is underway.

From August 6 through August 11, cars and pick-up trucks may be subject to delays of at least 30-minutes between the hours of 6:00 am and 8:30 pm. 

Wide and long vehicles such as motor homes, pick-up campers, vehicles pulling trailers, delivery trucks, and tour buses may be subject to delays of up to two hours, or may be detoured around the construction through Canyon and Norris Junction.

Updated road information is available 24-hours a day by calling (307) 344-2117.
