News and Adventure from Glacier National Park

Various road repair and rehabilitation projectswill be underway that may result in traffic delays throughout Grand Teton National Park and the John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway during the 2015 travel season. Motorists should expect several of these projects to begin in early May.

Phase 3 Pathway: Construction of the shared-use pathway segment that runs parallel to Highway 89 from Moose Junction to Antelope Flats Junction (1.2 miles) will continue from May—October. Motorists should expect 15-minute delays between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., 7 days per week from May 1 through September 30, and plan for extra time to reach their destination.

Highway 89, North Park Road, Teton Park Road and associated parking areas: Annual striping projects will be underway during June, with minimal delays possible.

Gros Ventre Road: An overlay project will take place from Kelly Warm Springs to the east park boundary in July, with 15-minute delays possible.

Highway 89 from Cunningham Cabin to the park’s east entrance, Colter Bay Access Road and Leek’s Marina: A chip seal project will take place in early August, with 15-minute delays possible.

Signal Mountain Road: will be closed from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of each week from late June through July for hazard tree removal.

Kelly Road: An overlay project will be underway from the town of Kelly north to Antelope Flats Road in July, with 15-minute delays possible.

Moose Wilson Road: Periodic closures due to wildlife or routine maintenance between Death Canyon Road and the Granite Canyon trailhead may occur throughout the summer and fall seasons.

Wayside turnouts and parking areas:

· Blacktail Ponds Overlook, closed May—September to accommodate the phase 3 pathway project. In addition, periodic closures of the Practice Rocks parking area will occur during various times due to construction activities on the adjacent pathway segment.

· Colter Bay Visitor Center parking areas, expect restricted parking during late August.

· South Jenny Lake parking area, expect restricted parking during September.

Construction schedules may change or be delayed due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances. Visitors are encouraged to call the road conditions line at 307.739.3614, or stop at park visitor centers for current and specific information. The park’s newspaper, Grand Teton Guide, includes a road construction map and can be found online at or picked up at any park visitor center or entrance station.
