Moose-Wilson road

The National Park Service has released a report that summarizes public comments on Grand Teton’s Moose-Wilson Corridor management strategies.

The corridor is a heavily traveled, single lane road, in the southern area of the park, from Moose toward Teton Village. The management plan would include road alignment, trailhead location, and access, among other considerations. During a 30-day period, the park received over 25-hundred comments.

Park official Andrew White says many of the comments will affect the next draft of the alternatives. One example, he says, is horses.

Park proposes Moose-Wilson Road re-alignment

Jun 6, 2012

Grand Teton National Park Officials are planning on a proposed re-route of the northern section of the Moose-Wilson road. For much of its nine-mile stretch, the narrow road winds between steep hills on one side and wetland habitat on the other.  The road is frequently congested with cars that stop to look at bears, moose, and other animals that live by the road.
