JACKSON HOLE, WYO – Ditch Creek Road, one of the many casualties of a soggy spring full of landslides, will be repaired beginning today and is expected to reopen Friday, September 15 in time for hunting season.
Earlier this summer the Ditch Creek Road washed out due to high water events experienced in that area of the forest as the snow began to melt. The road has been under an emergency closure order since that time.
Material will be hauled into the site beginning Friday, September 8. Road repairs will continue throughout the following seven-day period. Forest road crew workers stress the need to use caution in the area as large machinery will be operating in order to complete the necessary repairs.
The project is possible thanks to a partnership between the Jackson Ranger District of the Bridger-Teton National Forest and Mountain West Services of Jackson.
