Landslide Closes Grey’s River Road

by Jackson Hole. Media

The Greys River Ranger District of the Bridger-Teton National Forest has implemented a temporary closure order for a portion of the Greys River Road near Alpine, Wyoming due to a large landslide that has compromised the road.

 

The closed portion of the Forest Service Road 10138 is 17-miles from the parking lot in Alpine, Wyoming. The slide path and the surrounding area remain highly unstable. Porcupine Creek Road remains unaffected by the landslide and is open to the public. Forest employees are working on establishing a possible reroute around the slide which could allow for passage beyond the buckling roadway. Because this is still an active slide and the earth and mud are still moving, there is no estimate as to when this landslide can be removed from the road or any meaningful repair work initiated.
