The park's main roadways, Highway US 89/191 and Highway US 26/287, are plowed and open for winter travel from the town of Jackson to Flagg Ranch just south of Yellowstone National Park. These travel routes offer outstanding mountain vistas and wildlife viewing opportunities. Park roads are often snow-covered and icy. Be prepared for winter driving conditions and carry a winter safety kit in your vehicle for emergencies. In addition, wildlife can linger near park roads, so be alert, and drive slowly for their safety and yours.

This app shows conditions on both local roads and highways. I wish there was a stated color legend, but it’s fairly obvious, and you can click on icons to see current alert and condition posts. Drill down to city streets is great. I notice that I have to reload this app if I have not used it in awhile— like most other apps. It works; an update in graphics would be good, but the actual detailed Hwy department data is indispensable.

Just came from Buffalo to Tensleep. The app had notice of “Commercial Vehicle Testing Operations,” so we called Buffalo DOT Maintenance about expected delays and were assured we’d notice almost nothing. Nowhere on the app nor in our call was the 15-minute wait for a flag car nor the chip and seal operation with loose gravel that went from the Sheep Mountain Lookout Road to the Washakie County line with 45 mph speed limit. Nowhere was the 5-minute wait for flag car along Tensleep Creek with a drop down to mud for a short distance between the end of the canyon and Tensleep. NO INFO. Don’t trust this app. It’s not updated as it should be.
