Yellowstone National Park will close its northern entrance near Gardiner to foot and bike traffic on Tuesday and Wednesday so crews can remove some heavy equipment from the Gardner Canyon. 

Park officials wrote in a news release that foot and bicycle traffic would be prohibited on a mile of the north entrance road between Gardiner and Mammoth Hot Springs. The road has been open to foot and bicycle traffic for weeks but has been closed to cars since mid-June, when historic flooding on the Gardner and Yellowstone rivers washed out several pieces of the road.

The closure will include a quarter-mile of land on either side of the road and a portion of the Gardner River, the release said. Anglers who want to fish the Gardner River will be allowed to fish from its confluence with the Yellowstone to the area directly east of the north entrance station.
