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.

  • Wish list season is upon us again - October 17, 2014
    Late October is a bad time of year for me. If I were independently wealthy, it wouldn’t be so bad. But I’m not. I’m a journalist, so it’s a little painful. It’s rough because this is when the Christmas catalogs start hitting the mailbox, and they’re chock-full of gear I wish I had. From the […]
