Snow King Estates water main work delayed due to frost

JACKSON HOLE, WYO – There is still enough of winter around here to delay spring construction projects.

The Town of Jackson’s engineering department just announced the postponement of scheduled work on the water main on Snow King Drive due to the depth of frost underground.

Work to complete the scheduled water system shutdown and tie-in of the new water main to the existing system has been rescheduled for Thursday, April 12. Trenching operations to begin installation of the new water main will be postponed until Monday, April 16, pending assessment of ground thawing operations on the upper section of roadway.

Water shutdown (revised date): Thursday, April 12, between the hours of 9:00am and 4:30pm, a water system shutdown will affect all properties on Snow King Drive and Keats Grove, as well as properties on Upper Redmond Road and the upper section of Upper Cache Creek Drive including Enoch Ferrin Circle.

All properties affected by the shutdown will be notified by door flyer.

This water system shutdown is being scheduled to complete installation of new valving and tie-in of the new water main to the existing water system.

Road closure and access restriction: Thursday, April 10, residents above 960 Snow King Drive will be subject to road closure as operations to tie in the new water main to the existing system begin. Residents above the area of construction/closure are asked to park vehicles below the construction zone in designated areas prior to the start of work each day.

Closures are anticipated to be from 8am to 6pm, but could begin later and end sooner depending on daily progress.
