Improvements on Yellowstone National Park's north entrance could begin next year. A recent grant as well as local money brings funding for the project to nearly $12 million.

Al Nash with Yellowstone National Park says the improvements to the entrance will make it easier for traffic get in and out of the park and make it safer for pedestrians. He says work should start sometime in 2014, they hope to have it finished in time for the park service's 100th birthday which is August 25, 2016.
