WYDOT work around the town square will disrupt traffic flow

JACKSON HOLE, Wyo. – The Wyoming Department of Transportation will be conducting some concrete slab replacement work in Jackson beginning Monday, October 14. The work will take place on Broadway just west of the town square and will last roughly a week

“We scheduled the work as late as possible, to avoid peak traffic season, while still getting acceptable curing temperatures,” WYDOT Resident Engineer Bob Hammond said.

Traffic control will be set up on Monday and will consist of lane closures, restricted turning movements and parking closures. The four lanes of traffic on Broadway just west of Cache will be reduced to one lane in each direction. Pedestrians will detour around the intersection while crews replace the slabs in the existing crosswalk.

Eastbound Broadway traffic will be reduced to one lane at Cache Street. People accessing north Jackson and points further north are encouraged to use the truck route. Westbound Broadway traffic from the Town Square will be reduced to a single lane for through and right turns. Left turns in this area are already prohibited. Southbound Cache traffic will remain unchanged. Northbound Cache traffic is also unchanged and will be allowed through movements and right-turn movements.

Parking on the south side of Broadway between Milward and Cache will be temporarily unavailable. Parking on the north side of Broadway will be closed from Cache to Glenwood. Parking on Cache up to the Cowboy Bar will be temporarily closed.

This temporary traffic control will cause some congestion for motorists and WYDOT is recommending that drivers consider using the truck route to avoid the construction area.

The local truck route is identified as Broadway Avenue east to Milward Street, then north along Milward Street to Mercill Avenue, then east along Mercill Avenue to Cache Street, and then north along Cache Street to the town limits.

“We understand that this work will be inconvenient for drivers. We will be working as quickly as possible to complete the job. We thank the public for their patience,” Hammond added.
