(Pinedale) Safety concerns on Skyline Drive have led Bridger-Teton National Forest officials in the Pinedale Ranger District to propose road improvements. An increasing number of motor vehicle accidents are driving the proposal to widen the existing road.

The proposal involves adding shoulders to the road surface, and expanding the road width by four feet, according to Dave Booth, Natural Resources Manager on the Pinedale Ranger District. The project would begin at the Forest boundary near the access road to Fremont Lake, and continue along Skyline Drive, to Trailís End Campground at Elkhart Park. In case of limited funding, the project could be divided into prioritized segments.

If approved, this project would begin no earlier than spring of 2008.
