Speed Limits Reduced in Teton County

November 14, 2011 Grand Teton National Park, Jackson Hole, Teton County No Comments
Speed 45

Tomorrow is November 15th, the date each year that the speed limit on Wyoming Highway 22 is reduced from 55 to 45 miles per hour.  Lt. Tom Kelly of the Wyoming Highway Patrol says the speed change is made in the interest of safety along that stretch of road. Frequently, several of the curves along the road, including one known as Brown’s Curve, become icy and treacherous due to their open exposure to the wind.  The area is also an active wildlife migration corridor.  At the same time, Grand Teton National Park has announced it is imposing a new speed limit reduction from dusk until dawn along US Highway 26/89/191 from the southern boundary of the park to Moran in hopes of reducing the amount of wildlife struck and killed along that portion of the highway.  Last year, says Park Superintendent Mary Gibson Scott, over 160 animals died in collisions with vehicles on park roads. Signs have been posted calling for daytime speeds of 55 mph to be reduced to 45 mph at night.
