Jackson, Wyo, - Crews will get to work plowing the main road through Grand Teton National Park on Monday.

Plowing will end skiing on Teton Park Road but begins a period every year when the pavement becomes accessible to people on bikes or on foot.

Until then, plowing operations will temporarily close 14 miles of road from Taggart Lake trailhead to Signal Mountain Lodge.

People will still be able to ski and snowshoe next to the road during plowing but park officials advise watching out for snow being thrown by plowing equipment.

The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports the road will open up to vehicle traffic May 1.
