WYDOT clearing ditches on Teton Pass

JACKSON, Wyo. (KIFI/KIDK) - Wyoming Department of Transportation road crews will begin digging out ditches on Teton Pass at around 9 a.m. Wednesday. 

A rotary plow and other equipment will begin at milepost 11 in the Twin Slides area.  The crews are digging out and blowing snow out of ditches along side the road.

"We need to dig out the snow there to give rocks a place to land if they come down," said WYDOT foreman Bruce Daigle said.  

Some traffic delays are expected, but the crews will be halting work at 4 p.m. to avoid interfering with evening commutes.

Traffic will be reduced to an alternating single lane during most of the work.  

WyDOT hopes to complete the work within two days.
