Snow could delay work on a Wyoming highway

Jackson, WY – Heavy snowpack could delay the start of this year's work to rebuild U.S. 26-287 over Togwotee Pass. The road work has been ongoing since 2006. To date, 29.5 miles
of roadway has been rebuilt. Just 8.5 miles remain - the final
section over Rosie's Ridge in eastern Teton County.
This year's work will include stabilizing six landslide areas.
Workers also plan to build a wildlife underpass to try to reduce
roadkill.
The Wyoming Department of Transportation says the project's
start date this year will depend on how long it takes for deep snow
to melt along the route this spring.
Completion of the Rosie's Ridge section is set for no later than
July 31, 2013.
