East Entrance Road to Open Next Friday
Written by Andrew-Rossi on April 27, 2018
The East Entrance Road to Fishing Bridge and Lake is scheduled to open to the public next Friday, May 4th, weather permitting.
But construction may already have begun on a 3.5-mile section of the East Entrance Road between Fishing Bridge and Indian Pond.
The improvements this year will benefit visitors and improve infrastructure in the park, according to park officials. Road construction efforts will widen narrow roads, improve entry and exit points into developed areas, provide for better scenic viewing opportunities along the road, and repair the historic Fishing Bridge. Park staff remind visitors to anticipate 30-minute delays between Fishing Bridge and Indian Pond (excluding Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day weekends).
But from October 15 through November 5, the road between Sedge Bay and Fishing Bridge will be closed altogether, and visitors traveling to and from Cody will need to use the Northeast Entrance during this closure.
Tower Fall to Canyon (Dunraven Pass) traditionally closes on October 9. Depending on weather, staff may keep it open after October 9 to allow for an additional route to and from Cody via the Northeast Entrance.
