Work continues on Old Faithful overpass bridge

JACKSON, Wyo. — The Old Faithful overpass bridge remains closed as repair work continues. The closure allows crews full access to the entire deck surface and approach lanes.

Crews are making deck repairs, new approach slabs, new curbing, girder repairs, railing improvements, and the removal and replacement of deck drains. The projected completion date (weather permitting) is late October 2020.

Travelers can still access Old Faithful and the Upper Geyser Basin, lodges, stores, the clinic, and gas station. Expect detours and delays. If you are not traveling directly to Old Faithful, consider alternate routes due to delays throughout the area.

The overpass was closed on July 22 due to safety concerns for the National Park Service to evaluate the condition of the bridge.
