County Commissioners Consider Pathway Placement

July 2, 2014 Teton County Comments Off

County commissioners are deciding whether an important pathway from Jackson to Wilson should go under Highway 22 or beside it.

Jackson Hole Daily says commissioners needed easements from Walton Ranch to finish the project, but it could take years so they decided to build the connector as soon as possible

July 2, 2014 Teton County Comments Off

Teton County’s engineer is releasing plans for a larger intersection between Spring Gulch Road and Highway 22 because the one built just a few weeks ago isn’t big enough for tractor trailers. County engineer Sean O’Malley tells Jackson Hole Daily they changed the intersection to slow traffic enough so pedestrians and bikers could cross safely, but now tractor trailers longer than 70 feet don’t have enough room to turn. O’Malley says the new design will have a narrow exit lane to keep truckers under 24 m.p.h. and should cost about $100,000
