Pavement preservation work on U.S. Highway 89 and other areas in Grand Teton National Park may begin tomorrow, May 16, and travelers should expect up to 15-minute daytime delays as chip seal activities get underway. Work on U.S. Highway 89 will begin at the park’s southern boundary and continue northbound throughout the year, extending to the south gate of Yellowstone National Park. Road work is dependent upon weather and temperature conditions.
The park-wide pavement preservation project is expected to be completed by the end of September. Visitors will see increased construction signage and equipment staging throughout the park.
The chip sealing work is a rolling construction operation that will gradually proceed from south to north on U.S. Highway 89.
