Information on Plowing + Sandbags + Plowing + START Bus for February 9

The Town of Jackson would like to inform the public of several pieces of information due to the extreme weather conditions in town.

STREET PLOWING SCHEDULED FOR TODAY
Town of Jackson Public Works crews will be scraping and moving snow and ice on Town streets and in Town alleys throughout the day with large snow moving equipment.  

The Town of Jackson is asking for the assistance and cooperation of car owners.   As crews work to remove snow, ice and water from the roads the Town is asking that people do not park on streets and in alleys if possible, or to move parked vehicles as Town crews work in the vicinity of parked vehicles. 

These operations typically occur late at night and during the early morning hours when the parking ban is in effect.   Due to the extreme nature of the weather and the road conditions the decision has been made to continue to work on streets throughout the day.   The Town will have every piece of equipment that they own working today including 3 scrapers, 2 loaders and 4 dump trucks.  

Please give these crews space and accesses to roads and alleys as they work.  Your cooperation is appreciated. 

IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING FLOODING IN YOUR STREET OR ALLEY:
If you live in the Town of Jackson and are experiencing flooding in your street or alleyway please call Amy Renova at the Public Works Department at 733-3079 and report the issue and provide an address.  The information will be relayed to the Streets Manager who will schedule a Public Works employee to address the issue as soon as possible.

SANDBAGS AVAILABLE:
Residents and businesses of Teton County and the Town of Jackson can get sandbags and sand to help protect property from snowmelt flooding. Those that need sandbags are responsible for filling, transportation and disposal of sandbags following the flood event. You can get sandbags at:

    “Please plan ahead if you think you may need sandbags; we cannot guarantee they will be available after hours or on weekends.”

    For additional information please contact Carl Pelletier, the Town of Jackson’s Public Information Officer at cpelletier@townofjackson.com or (307) 734-3488.

START BUS ROUTES TO TETON VILLAGE IMPACTED
Due to the Snake River Canyon and Teton Pass closures START Bus is experiencing a driver shortage.  Due to being understaffed, beginning at 10:00 AM all buses servicing Teton Village will be converting to a Green Line.

START Bus will be dispatching buses on a 20-30 minute interval. Please use the START Bus Real Time Bus Locator, RouteMatch, on the website - www.startbus.com - to find out the exact location of the buses.  Riders may also call the START offices for information at 733-4521 ext. 1.

Town Shuttles will remain in full service. Tomorrow START will begin operating our summer Green Line service to Teton Village until further notice. We will be posting that schedule on our website.

START would like to apologize for this inconvenience and thank the community for their continued patience during this extreme weather pattern.

For more information and the most current information on bus schedules please visit www.startbus.com or contact Anna White at (307) 733-4521 ext. 8.   START Bus would like to thank everyone who utilizes alternative modes of transportation including public transit.
