Togwotee Pass nighttime traffic closures end
Nighttime traffic closures concluded Tuesday night, Sept. 21, for the 2010 construction season on the Togwotee Pass-Four Mile Meadows highway improvement project west of Dubois on U.S. 26-287, according to Lyle Lamb, Wyoming Department of Transportation resident engineer in Dubois.
Stop delays of up to 20 minutes are still expected during daylight and nighttime hours throughout the Togwotee Trail corridor as highway improvements continue.
Construction continues to progress west from milepost 31, located two miles above Brooks Lake Road on the east side of Togwotee Pass.  The road surface is being prepared for a paving crew, and weather permitting, paving may begin next week.


Other ongoing work by prime contractor Oftedal Construction Co., includes completing the foam block slide area at the Fremont/Teton County line; paving at the Togwotee overlook; wetland mitigation near Moccasin Basin; installing delineator posts, guardrails or barriers; and highway striping.

This summer's nighttime traffic closures were in effect from mid-July to Sept. 22 on 16.4 miles of U.S. 26-287.

The three-hour traffic closures on U.S. 26-287 – The Togwotee Trail to Yellowstone – began the week of July 12, with closures from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. and 1:30 a.m. to 4:30 a.m.
