Grand Teton National Park is conducting a chip seal project on a portion of Highway 89/287, from Jackson Lake Lodge to Moran Junction. The project will take two days: Wednesday, July 16 and Thursday, July 17. Motorists should expect delays of no more than 15 minutes between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on each of those days, while the chip seal project is being completed.
Flaggers will direct traffic through the work zone. Motorists are asked to be cautious while traveling through the area and to drive slowly in order to avoid windshield damage.
Chip sealing is a critical part of road maintenance, and the project will improve the long-term durability of this heavily-used park road.
Roadwork schedules may change or be delayed due to weather conditions, equipment failure, or other unforeseen circumstances. For road updates, visit the park’s website at www.nps.gov/grte or call the park’s recorded information line on road conditions at (307) 739-3614.
