Moose-Wilson open again, but not for long

MOOSE, Wyo. — The northern stretch of Moose-Wilson is open again this afternoon after closing over the weekend due to bear activity.

But the unpaved section of the road is about to close. Routine dust abatement will close the road from 4 a.m. Tuesday through midafternoon.

Motorists who drive the unpaved portion of the Moose-Wilson Road after it reopens on Tuesday afternoon may want to rinse off their vehicles to eliminate any residue. The product used for dust abatement is a slurry of magnesium chloride-the same product that is used to treat dirt roads in and around Jackson Hole. This product coats the road surface, but it can also adhere to the undercarriage of vehicles.

Electronic signs are located along the roadway to alert park visitors and local residents of the scheduled road closures.

Roadwork schedules may change, or be delayed, due to weather conditions, equipment malfunction, or other extenuating circumstances.
