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.

  • Be ready for bumps, scrapes, cuts and more - October 30, 2014
    Being prepared for the worst is never a bad idea. However, if you carry everything you might need for any emergency, you won’t have room for your tent or sleeping bag. A first aid kit needs to be light and compact, or it’ll be one of the first things you toss out of the pack […]
