A road crew applies dust abatement chemicals on the unpaved section of the Moose-Wilson Road in Grand Teton National Park.

Grand Teton National Park will temporarily close the unpaved section of the Moose-Wilson Road for seasonal dust abatement next week.

The park plans to close the road at 4 a.m. Sept. 14 and reopen the road at 8 a.m. Sept. 16.

The dust abatement is routinely applied several times during the summer over the 1-mile section of unpaved road. The entire road is about 7 miles long.

“During the dust abatement application Sept. 14-16, motorists and bicyclists must plan to use an alternate route as this temporary closure will prevent making a ‘through trip’ on the Moose-Wilson Road between the Granite Canyon Entrance Station and the Teton Park Road at Moose, Wyoming,” the park said in a statement.

The Laurance S. Rockefeller Preserve parking area and Death Canyon Trailhead will remain accessible by traveling south from the junction near the Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center.
