Lines Cause Stir Among Cyclists

The valley’s bicyclists are in an uproar after the painting of new turn lanes on Wyoming Highway 22 just west of Jackson greatly diminished the bike lanes along the highway in several locations.  Consequently, Friends of Pathways is actively in contact with the Wyoming Department of Transporation and Teton County to address those newly created turning lanes.  The new lanes and striping installed by WYDOT on Wyoming Highway 22 at Brown’s Curve and near West Gros Ventre Butte have resulted in the narrowing of the eight-foot wide shoulder to 3½ feet.  Friends of Pathways points out that the American Association of State Highway and Transporation Officials have published a policy on the design of highways and streets recommending an 8-foot shoulder on rural collector or arterial highways that carry more than 2,000 vehicles/day. WYO-22 carries more than 20,000. Friends of Pathways is advocating the reestablishment of the old stripes until WYODT has an opportunity to widen the shoulders to accomodate the additional lanes.  WYDOT District Engineer John Eddins says the department is currently working toward long term solutions for all modes of travel on Highway 22 through its Planning Environmental Linkage Study.
