Roundabout Opens At Hoback

August 31, 2012 Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming, Teton County No Comments
roundabout

It likely put some motorists’ heads in a spin yesterday when the Wyoming Department of Transportation began routing traffic at Hoback Junction through the new round-about at that intersection.  Lieutenant Tom Kelly of the Wyoming Highway Patrol saysthe concept for how it works is easy enough.  All traffic moving through the roundabout moves in a counter-clockwise direction.  Kelly says when entering the roundabout, traffic is to yield to those approaching from the left – traffic on the left has the right-of-way.  However, Kelly quickly adds that not everyone approaching the new intersection is entirely familiar with the protocols, and so caution and patience will be critical – especially during its early stages of use.  Additionally, Kelly cautions that the connection to the old bridge requires a jog in the roadway for those exiting or entering the roundabout.

  • Estimating range on waterfowl is easy - October 22, 2014
    If you’ve done any goose hunting, you’ve probably heard the term “skybusting.” You may know it means shooting at birds that are out of your shotgun’s effective range, but do you know if you’re guilty of it? You can set up your decoys to minimize the risk of shooting at birds when they’re too far […]
