Speed Limit Drops On Highway 22

November 14, 2012 Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming, Teton County No Comments
Speed 45

Jackson Hole Residents have already experienced periods of slippery roads after the first snows of the season, but tomorrow is the day the seasonal speed limit on Wyoming Highway 22 is dropped until spring.  Wyoming Highway Patrol Lieutenant Tom Kelly saysit drops to 45 mph from November 15th through April first.  That, he says coincides with the seasonal trailer restriction on Teton Pass where during the period no trailers are permitted regardless of what the weather and road conditions are.  Kelly explains the speed change is due to the winter driving conditions and the increase in migratory animals along the route.  Kelly also reminds motorists that the speed limit along Highway 390 also has a reduced night-time speed by 10 mph from the daytime speed due to the amount of wildlife that is in the area.

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
  • Cowboy O-Line Being Told To Be the Hammer, Not the Nail [AUDIO] - April 16, 2014
    The Wyoming Cowboy football team will have one more practice before Saturday’s spring game.  The major focus this spring, at least for the offensive line, is to be more physical and deliver the blows.  As offensive line coach Scott Fuchs tells the unit, “be the hammer, not the nail”.  That’s a difference in philosophy between […]
