Gettysburg National Military Park Announced Upcoming Road Paving Project
May 15, 2023
Originally scheduled to begin on Monday, May 22, 2023, the start of a paving project at Getysburg National Military Park has been delayed to mid-June, with park roads on the southern portion of the Gettysburg battlefield to be repaved. This four-month project will address road surfaces that are at the end of their lifespan.
This project requires road closures that will temporarily interrupt the ability to visit portions of the battlefield while work is ongoing. Park roads may be fully closed or reduced to a single lane of traffic. However, no work will occur during the events of the 160th Anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg commemoration from July 1 to 3, 2023, weekends or federal holidays.
Scheduled paving dates are subject to change. Every effort will be made to complete the work as expeditiously as possible, as well as minimize disruptions for park visitors. Full details on the schedule of road work will be made available at nps.gov/gett and on Gettysburg National Military Park social media platforms as details become available.
