JACKSON HOLE, WYO – No two ways around it (excuse the pun), roadwork this spring and summer is going to cause pain. And delays. And pain. Yes, we said “pain” twice.
With cooperation from multiple federal, state, county and municipal agencies, two open houses will take place this week to get drivers up to speed (again, excuse the pun) on road construction that will take place this season.
- Wednesday, April 11, from 4:30-6:00pm at the Kelly School.
- Thursday, April 12, from 4:30-6:00pm at the new Bridger-Teton Forest Service office (340 N. Cache Street in Jackson).
Almost everyone will be affected to some degree by the roadwork scheduled this spring/summer. From continued highway expansion work on S. Highway 89 from South Park Loop Road to Hoback Junction to the Gros Ventre roundabout and Cattleman’s Bridge repair, motorists will find construction cones a familiar sight north and south of town.
Grand Teton officials will share with the public what they can expect to see as far as activities and related impacts due to construction of the Gros Ventre roundabout and other safety improvements in the park, as well as other road construction projects in the area.
Representatives from Bridger-Teton National Forest, Jackson Hole Airport, Teton County, Town of Jackson, and Wyoming Department of Transportation will also be at the open houses to share information regarding their respective projects and impacts.
GTNP superintendent David Vela said, “There will be traffic delays and other impacts related to the Gros Ventre roundabout construction this year, as well as other projects happening in the area. Travelers are highly encouraged to be aware of the various activities and plan ahead.”
The two information-sharing open houses are a collaborative effort to provide information and assist local residents and business members to adequately plan for impacts.
Vela added, “Our sincere appreciation goes to our local, state and federal partners for working collaboratively and strategically on the many road and safety improvement projects in the community. We all benefit by working together.”
Meanwhile, town crews will be busy finishing up water main work in the Snow King Estates area, Budge Slide mitigation, and other projects throughout town. The Town of Jackson’s associate engineer Jeremy Parker will be on hand at the April 12 meeting to explain and answer questions about construction projects within town limits.
Brief remarks will be followed by a short group ride and refreshments.
