Roadwork Planned on South Entrance Road Until End of September

Roadwork is recommencing on the road between Yellowstone National Park’s South Entrance and West Thumb Junction.

According to a Yellowstone press release, work will run between today (August 22, 2017) and the end of September. Drivers should expect delays of up to 30 minutes.

Crews will be working to seal, sweep and stripe the road. This work was previously scheduled for mid-August. However, it was delayed in anticipation of heavy traffic for the 2017 solar eclipse, which passed over Grand Teton National Park.

The brunt of roadwork will take place between now and Friday, September 1. There will be no roadwork between September 2 and 4.

From September 5 onward, work will be done as needed until sweeping and striping is finished.
