Teton Pass opens to trailer traffic, today April 1

WILSON, Wyo. — Teton Pass is now open to trailer traffic, following the seasonal closure since November 15.

The pass will be open to trailer traffic, conditions dependant. Trucks and trailers are permitted to use Teton Pass if they are under 60,000 lbs gross vehicle weight.

The Wyoming Department of Transportation warns that Teton Pass is extremely dangerous for overweight trucks, “grade steepness, grade length, and curve severity can cause trucks to lose control.”

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.
