New construction has begun on a section of the East Entrance road located near Lake Butte at the northern edge of Yellowstone Lake –approximately 8 ½ miles east of Fishing Bridge. A combination of water runoff from the mountain above and an unstable earth layer underneath the road surface has caused a section of the road edge to break away over time. Throughout the construction, traffic will be guided through a short, one-lane section with a portable traffic light. Temporary closures may be a possibility, but are not expected. The project is expected to be completed by the end of the season. Construction also continues on the road between Tower Fall and Tower-Roosevelt.
