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!”
