Another Delay For Hoback Bridge

January 13, 2014 Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming, Teton County No Comments
Hoback Bridge

It probably will come as no surprise to anyone who has driven through Hoback Junction over the past month that the new bridge over the Snake River is not ready for traffic yet.  Wyoming Department of Transportation Spokesperson Stephanie Harsha says inclement weather including snow and frigid temperatures have put the contractor behind schedule.  Harsha says the newest estimate for the opening of the bridge is as early as January 24th or as late as the following week.  The new bridge was originally scheduled for completion in October of 2012, but it has been plagued with contractual disagreements and flawed construction prior to the latest headaches brought about by the weather.  Once the new bridge is opened, work will begin on the demolition of the old one which was built in 1950.
