2021 Road Construction in Yellowstone National Park

Tower Fall to Chittenden Road

The road between Tower Fall and Chittenden Road will be completely closed until May 2022. Specific areas on each side of this closure will be open for select time periods:

  • On the Canyon Village side of the closure: Currently closed; no estimate on reopening. Trails to the top of Mount Washburn are also closed.
  • On the Tower-Roosevelt side of the closure: Closed all of 2021. Tower Fall, the Tower General Store, Tower Fall Campground, and Calcite Springs will be open and accessible from Tower-Roosevelt between June 4–September 26, 2021. In the winters, Tower Fall and trails in the vicinity will be open for skis and snowshoes, snow-permitting, from early November through March (follow all closure signage posted at Tower-Roosevelt). Traffic from Tower-Roosevelt will be turned around at Calcite Springs May 7–June 4, 2021; and September 26–November 8, 2021. There will be no access to the trails for Mount Washburn from the Tower-Roosevelt side of the closure.

North Entrance

Beginning in early summer, expect delays around the North Entrance. The entrance station will be open. More details, including dates, will be available after a construction contractor is selected. This project will start in 2020 and take two years.
