Teton County and the Town of Jackson will be performing annual pathways sealing during the week of August 3 to 7, 2020. Pathway users should be aware that selected pathways will be closed to public use for periods of up to several hours, but the closures will be limited to the minimum amount of time needed for the sealant dry. For the majority of the project duration, the pathways in the project area will be open for public use. This year’s project areas include the following pathways: the Garaman Path along Flat Creek from the new Post Office to Gregory Lane; the pathway along Blair Dr. from the Community Garden to Whitehouse Dr.; the South Park Loop Pathway west from Middle School Road and then south to High School Road; South Park Loop Pathway from the south end of 3 Creek Ranch (Cody Creek Dr.) to Highway 89; and the Von Gontard Pathway south of Melody Ranch from South Park Loop to Game Creek.

Pathways officials will post signs on paths in the project area informing the public of the estimated date and time for pathway closures. However, the public is advised that the actual date and times are subject to change based on weather, equipment, or other delays that may be beyond the contractor’s control. Current updates and project area maps will be posted as available on the Teton County website at

People that choose to travel on the pathway during the sealing project should exercise extreme caution and should expect to encounter sections of hot oil sealant that may cause injury or damage bicycles or other equipment and clothing. Users should also expect to encounter construction crews, large equipment, and trucks.

All pathway users are requested to respect and obey instructions from maintenance crews and any signage along the pathway system, and to stay off freshly sealed pathways until the sealant is completely dry.
