Truck Arrester System Moving Forward

 The Wyoming Department of Transportation will move forward with its scheduled construction of two truck arrestor systems, also known as catch-nets, for 2015.  The first arrestor system will be constructed at milepost 8, near one of the existing runaway truck ramps.  Motorists traveling down the pass will see this arrestor first.  A recent public meeting took place in Wilson to gather input on locations for the second arrestor system.  After reviewing public comment from that meeting, WYDOT officials are leaning towards locating the lower site at milepost 6.35 located on the straight/flat section adjacent to the Trail Creek Ranch, between Wilson and the Heidelberg for the second arrestor.  The system is to be one of 16 in the world and like the arresting gear on an aircraft carrier to stop planes, it uses a series of metal nets to stop out-of-control vehicles.

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 […]
