MOOSE, Wyo. — Maintenance work on Jackson Lake Dam will lead to intermittent closures of Teton Park Road in the area from Oct. 11 to 13, Grand Teton National Park (GTNP) announced Thursday.
Work will be conducted by the Bureau of Reclamation’s Upper Snake Field Office. Crews will inspect and perform maintenance work on the dam, making use of cranes to do so.
Teton Park Road will be closed on and off between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. for up to two hours at a time. This means park visitors will not be capable of making a through-trip on the road.
“Those wishing to access the northern part of Grand Teton or Yellowstone National Park may use U.S Highway 89/191,” GTNP’s press release said.
The road will remain open in the evenings. GTNP says work schedules may change depending on weather.
Signs posted at Jackson Lake Junction near Signal Mountain Lodge will warn drivers about the closures a day in advance. Flaggers will direct traffic north of the dam and south of Catholic Bay Picnic Area.
