YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. (AP) - A section of the Grand Loop Road between Mammoth Hot Springs and Norris Junction in Yellowstone National Park will be closed for about four weeks for construction.

The road was scheduled to close at 10 p.m. Sunday. It will not reopen until Oct. 7.

The closure will take place between Willow Flats, just south of Indian Creek Campground, and Roaring Mountain, five miles north of Norris Junction.

During this time, visitors traveling south through the park from the Mammoth Hot Springs area will need to take a detour. The detour includes driving through Tower Junction and over Dunraven Pass for access to Canyon Village and the southern portion of the Grand Loop Road.
