Officials Celebrate End Of Togwotee Pass Work

DUBOIS, Wyo. (AP) — Officials are celebrating the completion of the first major reconstruction of the road over Togwotee (TOH’-go-tee) Pass.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony and other festivities are planned Tuesday starting at 2 p.m. at the Togwotee Overlook on U.S. Highway 26-287, about 16 miles east of Dubois.

It will include an appearance by Wyoming Department of Transportation goodwill ambassador Les Hamilton. The guitar-playing cowboy visited cars stopped by the construction, which has taken seven years to finish.

The 38-mile road is one of three eastern approaches to Yellowstone National Park.

The first road over Togwotee Pass opened in 1921, roughly in line with an Indian trail that had been used for centuries. It wasn’t paved until 1950.
