WYDOT will talk more about replacing Snake River Bridge

JACKSON HOLE, Wyo. – The Wyoming Department of Transportation will host a second meeting to discuss the Snake River Bridge and the redesign of the intersection of highways 390 and 22.

The Snake River Bridge is nearing the end of its lifespan, according to transportation officials. As many motorists have experienced, the bridge deck itself is deteriorated and the entire two-girder fracture-critical system bridge needs to be replaced.

The WYO 390-WYO 22 intersection was identified in the Planning and Environmental Linkages Study (PELS) as a major intersection in which motorists encounter delays. The PELS listed the intersection and the Snake River Bridge as a “high priority improvement project.” Due to the close proximity of the intersection to the bridge, it has been included as part of this project.

The Wyoming Department of Transportation will be hosting a second public meeting on the Snake River bridge replacement and intersection project on Thursday, Oct. 17 from 5–7 p.m. at the SpringHill Suites Conference Room at 150 W Simpson Avenue in Jackson.

WYDOT will present the results of a transit review, initiated by WYDOT.  The purpose of the review was to identify what transit improvements, if any, should be considered in this project.
