Pathway Additions Slated in GTNP

GTNP Pathway

The National Park Service has made final decisions regarding the next two phases of the Grand Teton National Park pathway system. These phases will extend the current network by 2.2 miles and improve safety for users of the existing segments. Park officials say the next pathway segment will extend the system along Highway 89 an additional 1.2 miles north from the tunnel at Moose Junction to Antelope Flats Road. The new pathway will cross the Ditch Creek ravine via a widening of the existing roadway fill.  A short retaining wall will surround the Ditch Creek culvert and thus reduce impacts to the creek and surrounding riparian area.  Improvements will also be made to the culvert to facilitate passage upstream for native fish.  Construction of this segment is expected to begin the fall of 2014 and be completed by the fall of 2015, with an opening in late spring 2016.
