WILSON, Wyo. — On Monday, trailer restrictions go into effect on Teton Pass for the winter season.
No trailers are allowed to travel over the pass until April 1.
According to WYDOT, “Any deviation from these requirements will increase the crash probability and threaten your life and the lives of other drivers on the pass.”
Trailer restrictions may continue to be issued ahead of the closure date due to winter weather conditions. Today, the pass is closed to trailer traffic and chain law level 1 is in effect.
When conditions are hazardous, chain laws go into effect. In Wyoming, penalties for failing to follow chain laws can result in a $250 fine or a $750 fine for violations that result in a road closure.
Trucks can use alternate routes around Teton Pass. The most frequently used alternative route from Idaho is through Idaho’s Swan Valley, to Wyoming’s Hoback Jct. on Wyoming Highway 26/89.
