Road work is underway at several locations in Grand Teton National Park. Work includes a chip seal project on Highway 89/287 that spans from the Snake River Bridge near Flagg Ranch Resort to Sargent’s Bay picnic area—approximately one mile north of Leek’s Marina. Delays of 15-30 minutes may be encountered through this project area from July 19 through July 22; however, roadwork schedules may change or be delayed due to weather, equipment malfunction, or other extenuating circumstances.
Significant work continues on the Teton Park Road from the
junction for the Spalding Bay Road to Jackson Lake Junction on Highway 89/287 as an asphalt overlay project proceeds. Expect delays up to 30 minutes on weekdays from now through late September.
Beginning Monday, July 19, crews will be painting the Snake River Bridge near park headquarters at Moose. This project may cause
15 minute delays on the Teton Park Road near the Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center through mid-August.
Starting September 1, and lasting through early November, the Pacific Creek Road south of Two Ocean Lake Road will experience
30 minute delays during weekdays, as this road gets stabilized and widened near a bend of Pacific Creek. The road will also be closed to traffic on weekdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Residents in the Pacific Creek area are being notified to plan for this daily closure.
