|WYDOT Plowing Moving North from Jackson through South Entrance|
To counter Barack Obama's Washington Monument game opening delays, Wyoming Department of Transportation rotary plows are clearing the South Entrance of Yellowstone National Park.
|Snow Plowing Progress Map, Effective 4/12|
Effective Tuesday, Wyomning Crews met a major milestone,
The Wyoming Department of Transportation crews spent 11 days plowing westward from the East Entrance. They met Yellowstone crews plowing eastward about 15 miles inside the park gate, according to department spokesman Cody Beers.Meanwhile, roads from Yellowstone's West Entrance in West Yellowstone, Montana and Mammoth Hot Springs to Old Faithful will open as originally scheduled (i.e., not on Obama's in your face sequester delayed schedule) this Friday, April 19. Roads will open starting at 8 a.m. on Friday morning. Kudos to the Town of West Yellowstone which overcame Obama's gamesmanship, with plowing efforts, and by sending a grader and operator into Yellowstone during the last week of March to assist with the removal of snow and ice on park roads near the West Entrance.
