Due to flooding in the Gros Ventre River in the Spring and Summer of 2017, Cattleman's Bridge on Spring Gulch Road had to be closed due to lack of stability and unsafe conditions.
The bridge was closed in June of 2017. Analysis, construction, and repairs could not take place until the river receded to workable levels.
A temporary, signal-controlled, one-way crossing was constructed and opened in December of 2017, and construction of a new, permanent bridge will proceed in the Spring and Summer of 2018. The Wyoming Department of Transportation has a stated goal of completing the project no later than October.
