Troubled Bridge Over Snake’s Waters

August 2, 2012 Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming, Teton County No Comments
Hoback Bridge

A disagreement over additional funds to build the new bridge over the Snake River and an associated retaining wall at Hoback Junction has brought that project to a halt until that disagreement can be resolved.  Wyoming Department of Transportation Resident Engineer Bob Hammond admits that negotiations could push completion of the structure back as much as two years.  It was to have been completed by this October.  Hammond says the construction company, Wadsworth Brothers out of Utah maintain there were design flaws that pushed the costs up, but WYDOT disagrees.  Discussions largely involve a retaining wall to be built just west of the bridge to stabilize a landslide-prone slope.  Meanwhile, Hammond says construction continues to be on track for the roundabout, pathways and park-n-ride nearby.  Hammond urges drivers through the construction area to continue to exercise caution, pointing out that construction activity does continue there.
