- WYDOT today issued a press release announcing the reopening of Highway 22 over Teton Pass. The road will reopen midday this Friday, June 28th, with an interim detour around the Big Fill landslide at milepost 12.8.

Since the pass collapsed on June 8th, WYDOT and Evans construction crews have been working around the clock to stabilize the area and build a paved, two-lane detour to connect the severed communities in the Teton Valley. The new detour is roughly 600 feet long, with an 11.2% grade and a sharper curvature. The speed limit will be reduced to 20 mph through the area.

The current 60,000 lbs gross vehicle weight restriction will remain as the road opens. There will be no additional restrictions. Trailer traffic will be allowed, but WYDOT encourages drivers to be cautious and aware of the reduced speed and obey all traffic signs.

At the mudslide location at mile marker 15.5, crews continue to work on a box culvert and are planning to begin paving today. Crews are committed to conducting the work under two-way traffic, so as not to impact travel on Teton Pass.

“Our residents, commuting workforce, and visitors – this road is open to you. I applaud everyone who has come together to solve this problem and help – that’s the Wyoming way.” Governor Gordon said in the press release.
