Snow King Ave  Traffic Control 

On May 28, 2013 the Jackson Town Council directed the Jackson Police Department to alter the traffic flow on West Snow King Avenue and on Scott Lane during peak traffic hours in the evenings to alleviate congestion associated with WYDOT’s Five-Way reconstruction project.

The police department has been asked to eliminate the stop signs on Snow King at Virginian and Scott Lane from 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM Monday-Friday.  In addition, no left turns will be allowed from any direction during that time period at the intersection of Snow King and Virginian.  Scott Lane will be closed to southbound traffic at Smith Lane. 

Officers will be at the intersections to monitor traffic and to ensure pedestrians are able to cross as needed.  Officers will not be directing traffic though, as the cones and barricades should be sufficient.  The intersections will function normally during the other hours of the day.

It should be noted that the changes to the stop signs and traffic flows are not permanent and are only in place during the construction period related to WYDOT’s Five-Way reconstruction project. No changes apply to any other intersections on Snow King Avenue.

Drivers are asked to slow down and be vigilant and pay particular attention to the altered traffic flows.  Special attention should be given to ensure pedestrian and bicycle safety throughout the congested area. 


An Important Message from the Chief of Police

 "A reminder to the public that parking in the downtown area is restricted to 3 hours maximum parking time (see signage for details). The limited parking restriction is in place to ensure adequate turnover in parking spaces for those doing business in the downtown area where parking is limited. Those who work in the downtown area are encouraged to park on streets outside of the restricted zone, park in the parking garage  located on Millward Street, park in TOJ public parking lots, walk or bike to work when possible, or use the START bus public transportation system. Enhanced enforcement ts by the Police Department will begin in mid-May 2013 and typically continue through September 15th. Please help the community by voluntary moving your vehicle before the 3 hour period elapses. Thank you!”

The purpose of the trip was to attend the National Bike Summit, an annual event held each spring in Washington DC for bicycle advocates and professionals to encourage members of Congress to support funding for bicycling infrastructure and programming as part of the national transportation policy. Mayor Barron and Chairman Ellis attended the Summit this year to meet with the Wyoming delegation and also to discuss the START Bus transit facility with officials from the US Department of Transportation.

**UPDATED** WYDOT’s "5-Way" Intersection project will soon be entering Phase 2 of construction.

Stop intersections along the southern route into the Town of Jackson via Snow King Avenue remain in effect. 
 
The Town of Jackson has been providing a traffic control presence on Snow King Avenue at the intersections of Virginian Lane and Scott Lane, as well as the intersection of Maple Way and Powderhorn Lane during the hours of 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm due to overflow congestion created by the WYDOT project at the 5 Way intersection of Broadway and Pearl for most of phase 1 of the project.
 
However, as phase 2 of the project now allows for two lanes of travel both east and west bound, through or around the construction corridor, the Town of Jackson will cease traffic control operations on Snow King Avenue and allow the regular traffic control devices to regulate traffic flows east and west bound on Snow King Avenue. The Town of Jackson Public Works Department and the Police Department will continue to closely monitor the situation and make adjustments as necessary on a day to day basis.
 
Mayor Mark Barron commented, “The one way traffic plan on Broadway and Pearl seems to be working well and moving traffic through at a regular pace, we’ll see how it works throughout the project and make adjustments if we need to.” Motorists are encouraged to plan their evening commute to allow for extra time to reach their destination and to be mindful of heavy congestion at intersections with pedestrian crosswalks. “We appreciate the patience that our everyone has shown during this critical project and the improvements to the corridor should make it safer for all users.”

 

Information about the "5-Way" project can be found online @ www.jacksonstreets.com. Scheduled access and road closures, as well as other day-to-day construction information can be found by clicking on the "Calendar" tab.

 

 

Questions and concerns regarding the "5-Way" Project should be directed to WYDOT Resident Engineer, Bob Hammond @ (307) 733-3665.
