More road work closing Moose-Wilson

MOOSE, Wyo. — The unpaved section of the Moose-Wilson Road in Grand Teton National Park will be temporarily closed for road grading beginning at 8 p.m. today, Oct. 8.

The road will reopen by 6 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 9. If the road maintenance work is not completed during this one night, the road will also be closed the following night during the same timeframe.

During the overnight closure, park visitors should plan to use an alternate route as this temporary closure will prevent making a through-trip on the Moose-Wilson Road. The closure will extend from the Granite Canyon Entrance Station to a gate south of the Laurance S. Rockefeller Preserve Center. Electronic signs will be placed on Wyoming Highway 390 and near Moose to alert park visitors and local residents of the scheduled road closure.

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

Visitors can call the park road information line at 307-739-3682 or visit the park’s Facebook and Twitter accounts to get information about fall road work locations in the park.
