Teton County Emergency Management
Wednesday February 8th, 2017 :: 07:33 p.m. MST


No Unnecessary Travel on State roads. Heavy utility equipment on Hwy 390, use caution.

Teton County Sheriff's Office would like to remind travelers on Highway 390/Teton Village Rd to use extreme caution and to slow down tonight and over the next few days.  There will be large amounts of heavy equipment from various utility companies in the area trying to restore power to our community.  Please slow down around this equipment and only travel on Highway 390 if absolutely necessary.

Teton Village Association would like to remind the community that power is still out at Teton Village, and that there are very limited to no public services available.  Jackson Hole Mountain Resort has closed the ski resort until at least Monday February 13th as well.  If you do not need to travel to Teton Village, avoid the area to allow emergency crews and public works professionals to get power back up and running.  There is NO EVACUATION ORDER in place for Teton Village at this time, nor is one anticipated.

Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce would like to remind people that other areas of the County outside of Teton Village do have power and are still offering exceptional visitor services in Jackson Hole.  Call 307-733-3316 for information on what is open and available.

WYDOT has issued a No Unnecessary Travel advisory for all State roads in Teton County from tonight 2/8 through tomorrow 2/9.  An approaching storm system that may include mountain snow and valley rain will likely cause dangerous travel conditions.  Commuters and businesses should plan accordingly.  At this time (2/8/17 at 7:45pm) Highway 22 Teton Pass is the ONLY state highway closed in Teton County.

The following is the definition of No Unnecessary Travel from the WYDOT website 

The road is open but travel is not recommended due to hazardous driving conditions. Generally, this advisory is posted during winter months due to extremely icy conditions, when visibility is limited due to blowing snow, or when a combinations of conditions makes travel ill-advised. 

Only the most urgent of situations should warrant travel in a No Unnecessary Travel advisory. Drivers who attempt such travel should be familiar with local conditions and be very experienced with winter driving. 

Please keep in mind that by choosing to travel during hazardous conditions, you may be interfering with maintenance personnel and their efforts to improve highway safety. 

Teton County Emergency Management thanks everyone for their time, patience, and for helping their fellow neighbors during this exceptional winter season.
