Swinging bridge removal will cause delays on US 89 south of Jackson


JACKSON, Wyo. (KIFI) - The Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT), along with contract crews from Reiman Corp., will be reducing traffic down to two lanes, one in each direction, on US 26/89/189/191 near Swinging Bridge Road, south of Jackson Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for the removal of the center section of the old Swinging Bridge. 

In addition, during that time frame, crews will also close the section of US 26/89/189/191 from Swinging Bridge Road north to the Snake River near the Evans Construction yard, to transport the old bridge to the BLM property located there. The closure is tentatively scheduled to last roughly 30 minutes which is the estimated time of travel to relocate the structure. 

Due to the size of the old Swinging Bridge structure, and the difficulty with turning movements and travel, the highway must be free of traffic to move it. WYDOT will send out a 511 Notify alert tomorrow prior to 30 minute closure to relocate the structure. 

WYDOT strongly advises commuters to avoid the area if possible tomorrow, be prepared for delays if traveling in the area, and sign up for 511 Notify alerts to receive updates on the project prior to the closure. Drivers can sign up for 511 Notify alerts HERE.
