JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Part of a popular road into Grand Teton National Park is being temporarily closed for dust reduction.

A 2-mile stretch of Moose-Wilson Road will be off limits from 4 a.m. Tuesday through 8 a.m. Thursday so road crews can spray a chemical to reduce dust.

The Jackson Hole News & Guide says this is the first of three applications scheduled for this year for the winding road at the base of Teton Range.

Officials plan to pave the dirt section of the road but construction won't begin for another year.
