The National Park Service has partnered with Grand Teton National Park Foundation to improve access to the Snake River.

The multi-year project will focus on three river access sites starting with Pacific Creek Landing, which is north of the Miranda area, as well as Jackson Lake Dam and Moose Landing.

Enhancements will improve infrastructure and safety, restore riparian habitat, and make it easier for the public to experience the landscape.

"It will help people to understand what it is they're looking at, walk away with a little bit more value-added information about the area and about the river. It will improve the launch sites for the many folks that put in and take out at that location," said Denise Germann, spokeswoman for Grand Teton National Park.

Work began this spring on the Pacific Creek Landing, north of the Miranda area. It will continue until June 7 and then pick up again in September to minimize impacts to visitors. Jackson Lake Dam and Moose Landing will be updated next.
