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.

    I promised you yesterday that I’d test a new product to see how well it works to keep you cool when the temperatures climb toward triple digits.   In case you missed it, yesterday I talked about seeing an ad on TV for a new type of training pants. The ad said, and I quote, […]
  • I’ll try anything to stay cool in the summer - July 24, 2014
    I recently saw an advertisement for a product that’s sure to be a big hit with outdoorsmen. Especially those of us who stomp around in the woods when the temperatures climb into the nineties.
