WYDOT will be knocking back roadside snowbanks on 390 today, tomorrow

JACKSON HOLE, WYO – The Wyoming Department of Transportation will be out plowing WYO 390 Village Road today beginning at 9am with a rotary plow to push out some of the snow banking that has crept in on the travel lanes.

Moose and other wildlife can sometimes get trapped on narrow roads when snowbanks get so high there are few places to get back off. This has been especially problematic in high snow winters on Fall Creek Road where there are less driveways. (Jackson Hole Wildlife Foundation)

Due to recent storms and high snow accumulation, some of the snow banks have begun to drift into the shoulders and travel lanes of WYO 390, some as far as 3 to 4 feet. The high banks also make it difficult for moose to get off the road once they are on it.

Rotary plows move at very slow speeds. They will be followed by a shadow vehicle. The work will take place at a time when traffic is historically lower but Teton Village Road is busy much of the time. Delays are expected. It would be wise to plan accordingly and avoid the area if you can.

Crews hope the work can be completed in the next two days.
