Roadside work on Pass may cause delays Wednesday and Thursday

JACKSON HOLE, WYO — The Wyoming Department of Transportation will be clearing out roadside ditches on WYO 22 Teton Pass near milepost 11 beginning tomorrow, Wednesday, April 17 from 9am to 4pm. Work will likely take place Thursday as well.

Crews will delay the start of work until the bulk of the morning rush hour traffic is over the hump. They will also try to knock off by 4pm for the afternoon rush. Otherwise, delays are expected as traffic will be reduced to an alternating single lane during most of the work. Motorists are asked to avoid the pass tomorrow and Thursday between 9am and 4pm, if possible.

Crews will be working in the Twin Slides area, digging out and blowing snow out of the ditches alongside the road using the rotary and other heavy equipment.

“We need to dig out the snow there to give rocks a place to land if they come down,” said WYDOT foreman Bruce Daigle.

WYDOT said it will try to get the job completed in the next two days.
