Bridge girder work will slow traffic south of Jackson tonight, tomorrow

JACKSON HOLE, WYO – Crews from Wadsworth Brothers Construction Company and the Wyoming Department of Transportation will be setting girders tonight and tomorrow on the South Highway 89 roadwork job south of town. Due to the size and weight of the girders, two cranes will be needed during the work, with one sitting on the bridge deck, closing one of the traveling lanes.

Traffic will be reduced to a single lane, with alternating traffic beginning about 6:30pm. The work will last several hours tonight and tomorrow evening. Crews will do their best to minimize impacts to motorists, but the work will cause delays.

WYDOT is advising travelers to use caution when traveling through this area and to be prepared for potential delays. Motorists should allow for ample time to reach your destination and obey all traffic control devices and signs. If possible, crews are asking motorists to avoid the area after 6pm.

These are big girders. One lane closure south of town on S. Highway 89 tonight and tomorrow beginning at 6pm. (Wadsworth Bros., WYDOT)
