Hoback Junction Bridge Construction Resumes

April 1, 2013 Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming, Teton County No Comments
Hoback Bridge

Construction is anticipated to resume later this month on the Hoback Junction Bridge over the Snake River which had been idled since last year.  Wyoming Department of Transportation Engineer Bob Hammond of WYDOT’s Jackson office says work on the bridge should get under way soon while negotiations with the company about construction of a retaining wall on the west side of the bridge continue.  Hammond says bridge construction should not disrupt the flow of traffic with the old bridge still in use, but once construction on the retaining wall begins, there will likely be delays.  Among the issues on the bridge itself is a variation between the two arches that will need correction so that the bridge deck is level.  Meanwhile, Hammond says work on the bridge near Horse Creek is slated to begin at the end of the month where Cannon Builders, Inc. of Blackfoot, Idaho will repave the bridge deck that for two years has been plagued with severe potholes.  Hammond says during the two months of construction, there will be a traffic light to direct one lane traffic through the work zone.

However, because this is a program about the outdoors, I’ll just talk about the things in the outdoors I’m thankful for. There’s plenty of it. Especially here in Wyoming. We’ve got […]
  • Pelts are nearing prime conditions - November 26, 2014
    The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer. It’s the amount of daylight, and not the temperature, that causes wild animals to grow longer, thicker coats. If you’re a predator hunter or a trapper, that’s your cue. The pelts are coming into their prime right now, but that doesn’t mean they’re at […]
