JACKSON, Wyo. — Teton County Emergency Management  and Teton County Road and Levee have issued a “no unnecessary travel” advisory on all county-maintained roads through Friday, Jan. 7.

Road conditions are deteriorating throughout Teton County, and it’s only going the get worse, Teton County said in a Nixle announcement. Staying off the roads will give road crews room to clear roadways and allow emergency vehicles to get where they need to be. Roads are technically open, but Teton County asks drivers to only travel if absolutely necessary, and use extreme caution if you do drive.

Affected roads include Fall Creek Road, Fish Creek Road, downtown Wilson, South Park Loop Road, Boyles Hill Road, Spring Gulch Road, Buffalo Valley Road, Alta Ski Hill Road and Hoback Junction South Road.

“Only the most urgent of situations should warrant travel in a No Unnecessary Travel advisory,” the alert says. “Drivers who attempt such travel should be familiar with local conditions and be very experienced with winter driving.”

A winter storm warning is in effect until 11 p.m. today.
