Will this change effect local development adjacent to the  intersection?

As far as adjacent development, WYDOT does contribute by providing comments, and we are aware of the residential housing development proposed near the Y.  WYDOT is not in the development approval business, as that is the responsibility of the local entities--Teton County and the Town of Jackson.  WYDOT does realize turning movements into and out of this type of development will be difficult at certain times of the day, but this is a relatively small development which will generate a nominal level of traffic that does not warrant any traffic mitigation.  The development plans on two access points, one directly onto WYO 22 and the other via the Teton County Emergency/Batch Plant Road. They realize that for the most part the access will be right-in/right-out only due to the sheer volume of traffic on WYO 22.
