JACKSON, Wyo. — Comment now or forever hold your peace.

The virtual open house and time frame to provide input on the Tribal Trail Connector Road will close on Friday, May 20, and Teton County Public Works wants to hear from you.

The virtual open house can be found here and includes the same information that was presented during the in-person open house on April 27.

The website also features a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section that was generated from discussions at the in-person event. Viewers can learn about the background and history of the project, study updates, the four design alternatives that are under consideration and next steps in the process.

The project team will consider public feedback when finalizing the preferred design alternative, which will be brought before the Teton County Board of  County Commissioners for their consideration this summer. 

Design alternatives are being evaluated utilizing several criteria, including safety, impacts to  natural resources and private property, improved emergency response, travel/route  redundancy and reduced local trips through the “Y” intersection.  

In June 2020, the Teton County Board of County Commissioners approved the continuation of  the planning process for the Tribal Trail Connector and will next be considering whether to direct staff to continue into the project design phase in FY2023.
