Weekend road work has been scheduled for this coming Saturday, July 27, on U.S. Highway 89 as part of Grand Teton National Park’s pavement preservation plan. Work will take place at Moran Junction, headed south. Travelers should expect up to 30-minute delays as chip seal activities are underway and the highway is reduced to one lane of travel. Road work will begin at 8:00 a.m. and continue late into the night. As always, the work is weather and temperature-dependent.
Travelers are advised to drive slowly and maintain the recommended speed limit on chip seal pavement to reduce the risk of debris damaging cars or windshields. The chip sealing work is a rolling construction operation that will gradually proceed along U.S. Highway 89. Visitors can expect temporary delays and reduced speed limits in these mobile construction zones.
Updated road status and conditions will be available by calling the park road information line at 307-739-3682 and on the park’s Facebook and Twitter accounts.
