Jackson Hole Community Pathways, a joint program of the Town of Jackson and Teton County, is pleased to announce the highly anticipated kick off to the Wyoming 22 Pathway project. The selected contractor, Cannon Builders Inc., will begin constructing the Snake River pathway bridge this week. Crews and equipment will begin arriving at the construction staging area at Emily’s Pond on Wednesday, March 6th. The pathway bridge is the first segment of the Path 22 project that will, upon completion, connect the west bank of the Snake River to the Town of Jackson via a separated, non-motorized pathway.

Pathways Coordinator, Brian Schilling, stated “We are pleased to welcome the Cannon team to our community and are excited to see this important and long-awaited project underway. Completion of the Snake River Pathway Bridge and associated pathways will forge a key link in our pathway and recreational network and, in keeping with our community transportation goals, will broaden transportation options for residents and visitors alike”.

Teton County and the Town of Jackson look forward to working collaboratively with the contractor to ensure the project’s success. In particular we will monitor progress and work with Cannon to anticipate and address issues, such as duration and intensity of runoff that may slow construction.

Construction of the westerly segment of the Wyoming 22 pathway project will be orchestrated from the Emily’s Pond area. Brian Schilling commented “While this is the most appropriate staging area, we realize this may have some impact to residents who frequent this popular recreational area. The area will remain open, under its current uses, with brief closures possible. The public will be kept informed of closures as they are scheduled and appreciate the public’s understanding and patience during these temporary impacts.”

The project schedule anticipates completion of this first portion of the Pathway, the segment from the Stilson parking area, cross the Snake River to the area immediately east of the Emily’s Pond area by the end of the calendar year. We look forward to working with the contractor and the public as this long envisioned community asset moves toward reality. Teton County Engineer, Sean O’Malley, cautions that initial progress may appear slow. “The three in-river pier installations will require several months of slow, difficult construction, with little to show for it. Things will get more interesting once the cranes begin installing the bridge superstructure in mid to late summer.”
