Repairs to close South Park Loop Pathway through August

JACKSON, Wyo. — Teton County will begin construction of the 2021 Three Creek Pathway Repair Project on Monday, Aug. 9, the county announced this afternoon.

The project will repair damage to the South Park Loop pathway caused by roots from mature cottonwood trees along the east side of the pathway. Construction will include removing and replacing damaged sections of the existing pathway, cutting roots that have grown underneath the pathway, and installing a root barrier along the east edge of the path to prevent further damage.

“This project will address a longstanding maintenance concern on a very well-used portion of the pathway system and will significantly improve access and safety for pathway users,” said Brian Schilling, Pathways Coordinator.

The construction work will require the closure of approximately 1.9 miles of the pathway between Rangeview Drive and Cody Creek Drive.The closure is expected to last three to four weeks through the end of August and possibly into early September.

The county staff recommends that pathway users plan to access alternate routes or be prepared to travel on the South Park Loop roadway in the project area. Pathway users are also asked to help ensure safety for the public and for workers by following instructions from construction crews and obeying any posted signage.
