Work ends on Rosie’s Ridge
By KVOW/KTAK News Director Leslie Stratmoen
DUBOIS, Wyo. – After months of work, the Rosie’s Ridge section of the Togwotee Trail to Yellowstone over the Continental Divide north of Dubois is done, at least for now.
The Wyoming Department of Transportation says the mainline paving is finished on the Rosie’s Ridge section of Highway 26/287 which serves as the main entrance from the south into the national park. Paving of the parking areas, turnouts and approaches will be wrapped up next spring.
Transportation officials say ditches on Rosie’s Ridge will continue to be lined with fabric and riprap rock to provide better water drainage and erosion control.
They also note the popular Vista View parking spot snowmobilers use as a jumping-off-point on the Togwotee Trail will be open and waiting for winter use as the weather turns colder and snow blankets the area.
