Lower Fremont Lake road repair work through Aug. 26
by Bridger-Teton National Forest
August 25, 2016
PINEDALE, WYOMING - The Pinedale Ranger District of the Bridger-Teton National Forest has started milling the Lower Fremont Lake Road. This project will continue until Friday, August 26, 2016, in which short delays and one lane traffic restrictions should be expected. Project is located three miles north of Pinedale, Wyoming.
The Lower Fremont Lake Road, number 37-740, is approximately 1.5 miles long and provides access to the Lower Fremont Lake Boat Ramp, Lakeside Lodge, CCC Ponds, and several summer homes along the south shore of Fremont Lake. This road also provides access to the Town of Pinedale’s potable water treatment facility located on the National Forest adjacent to the boat launch facility.
Federal funding for road maintenance and reconstruction has declined significantly in the past couple of years, and is expected to continue to decline. The substantial number of potholes and overall poor pavement condition has caused significant safety concerns that has deemed the pavement unrepairable. This is a cooperative project involving the Town of Pinedale, Central Federal Lands Highway Division, and the U.S. Forest Service, aiming to alleviate some of the safety concerns that are currently applicable to the road.
Please contact the Pinedale Ranger District at (307) 367-4326 if you have any questions regarding this project.
