Visitor services at Grand Teton National Park and the John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway are winding down from the 2016 summer season. The park and parkway remain open to visitors year-round, though roads and park areas may be temporarily closed due to weather, road conditions, wildlife, or other reasons.

Construction continues at Deadmans Bar Road, parking area, and boat launch in Grand Teton National Park. The project will improve the road surface, expand and formalize the parking area to improve traffic circulation, provide better access to the Snake River, and revegetate areas that have been impacted by overflow parking in the past. While the construction schedule was designed to maintain access during the heart of the busy summer season, the road will be closed during the shoulder seasons to accommodate crucial road work that cannot be completed on the narrow road with traffic present.

Starting on Wednesday September 21, construction-caused delays will be limited to 30 minutes to any vehicle entering or exiting Deadmans Bar area.The southern ramp at Deadmans will be closed beginning on September 21 and will remain closed through the winter season. The northern ramp will remain open until October 3. Deadmans Bar Road, parking area and ramp will be closed beginning at 8:00 a.m. on October 3 and will only be available for contractor use.This closure includes the removing of watercraft from the Deadmans area.
