Grand Teton National Park has announced plans for some road paving in the park, but quickly adds that it will have not impact on typical park users. Furthermore, an environmental impact assessment determined that the paving of a one-mile segment of Meadow Road that provides access through Grand Teton National Park to a neighboring subdivision will not have a significant impact on park resources.
Meadow Road was constructed before the establishment of the park and is located about 1½ miles north of the Jackson Hole Airport Road.
The singular purpose of the road is to provide property owners and residents access to the subdivision which is located outside of and adjacent to the park boundary.
The access route does not provide an official visitor or administrative park use or service. Private property access by means of the road is authorized through the park’s founding legislation.
No scheduled time has been set for the construction to begin as yet.
