Granite Hot Springs to close temporarily for pool resurfacing
Starting Sept. 9th and lasting about 2 weeks
by Bridger-Teton National Forest
September 3, 2014
The Granite Creek Hot Springs Pool will be temporarily closed next week to complete re-surfacing of the pool. The closure will begin Tuesday, September 9, 2014 and is expected to last up to two weeks.
"Re-surfacing the pool is necessary to repair the chipped and cracked surface," Linda Merigliano, Jackson District recreation staff said. "The current plaster surface has out-lived its expected life and must be replaced."
In order for the plaster to cure properly, the project needs to be completed before November, when temperatures will be too cold.
The hot springs pool is located on the Bridger-Teton National Forest, about 40 minutes south of Jackson at the end of Granite Creek road. Signs will be posted at the pool and at the beginning of the Granite Creek road. As the project progresses the BTNF website, www.fs.usda.gov/btnf, will have the most up-to-date information. Please check the status of the pool before planning a trip to the hot springs.
Contract crews will be mobilizing on September 8, visitors that day should expect to see machinery in the area. Please check the website or call the district at 307-739-5400.
