Plowing to Begin West of Pahaska Monday
Written by Andrew-Rossi on March 29, 2017
You know spring is coming when plowing starts between Pahaska and the East Gate of Yellowstone.
Annual spring opening road work on Highway 14/16/20 west of Pahaska is scheduled to begin next Monday, April 3, depending on the weather.
The Wyoming Department of Transportation points out that this stretch of highway is closed annually due to the limited amount of traffic, and has traditionally been a popular winter recreation area for cross-country skiers and snowmobilers.
Following the opening of the two-mile stretch between Pahaska and Yellowstone’s East Gate, WYDOT maintenance workers will shift their focus to annual road-opening operations of Highway 14A east of Lovell in the Bighorn Mountains.
