Road work in East Entrance road in Yellowstone
Construction work has begun on a section of the East Entrance road in Yellowstone National Park.
The work to shore up the roadway is located near Lake Butte at the northern edge of Yellowstone Lake known as "Nine-Mile." It is expected to continue through the summer.
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.
Construction also continues on the road between Tower Fall and Tower-Roosevelt. No nighttime closures are in effect, but visitors could experience delays of up to a half an hour passing through the area.
