Speed Limit Reduced On Wyo 22

November 15, 2013 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 today is the day the seasonal speed limit on Wyoming Highway 22 between Jackson and Wilson is being reduced until spring.  Wyoming Highway Patrol Lieutenant Tom Kelly says it drops to 45 mph from November 15th through April first.  He says it is an annual change that has been practiced for several years now.  Says Kelly:  “The primary reason is for the increase in wildlife crossing along that area, but it also helps with the winter conditions; especially around the curves by the sweeping corners about two miles out where the wind likes to blow out across there and keep things pretty slick.” 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.  Meanwhile, the speed limit along highway 390 also known as the Teton Village Road is 45 by day and 35 by night for the first four miles from the intersection with 22 traveling toward the village in deference to the wildlife there.
