As one road project in Yellowstone nears completion, several other smaller projects are set to get underway.

Work on a section of road between Norris and Madison through Gibbon Canyon began last spring. Starting Monday, July 12, traffic will be shifted onto the new road alignment and across the new bridge over the Gibbon River.

Once this shift occurs, restoration of the two miles of old road segment along the Gibbon River will get underway.

Visitors can continue to expect up to 30-minute delays through October 20. This section of road will also be closed to travel between 10:00 p.m. and 8:00 a.m. every night until September 1.

On the east side of the park, the contractor is gearing up to start work on a one mile section of the East Entrance road through Sylvan Pass. Once construction beings, visitors can expect up to 30 minute traffic delays through the area until work concludes in the fall. There will be no night time closures.

Park road crews also have two chip seal projects planned for the coming weeks.

Work is slated to begin Monday, July 12 to chip seal the road between Lewis River Falls and the park’s South Entrance. This project is expected to be completed by the weekend. Delays of up to 30 minutes are possible.

The road between Canyon Junction and Fishing Bridge Junction is also set to be chip sealed. Work is scheduled to start Monday, July 26 and end Thursday, August 5. No work is scheduled for Friday, July 30 through Sunday, August 1. Visitors can expect traffic delays of up to 30 minutes when work is underway.

Updated road information is available 24 hours a day by calling (307) 344-2117.
