Big truck ban proposed

by Cat Urbigkit

Sublette County Undersheriff Henry Schmidt gave the Sublette County Commission an update Tuesday on the Mountain Village trailer park and mancamp located just south of Big Piney.

Schmidt said that Riley Alexander had just provided an update on activities and plans for the mancamp. With new parts arriving for the sewer plant, testing of the system is slated for later this week, Schmidt said. Trees will be planted around the mancamp in May, while other improvements are ongoing.

Schmidt said he was told that the Alexanders have received requests for 110 units, to handle from 400 to 500 people.

Schmidt said that, at a recent safety meeting, a Halliburton representative said his company will no longer be using Tyler Street to access the Mesa and Pinedale Anticline development with tractor-trailers due to concern with chemicals being hauled through Pinedale's residential area. Traffic could be diverted to the Green River Road instead, Schmidt said.

Schmidt said that Halliburton plans to work with other companies and the town to see about getting tractor-trailer traffic prohibited on South Tyler in Pinedale.

Sublette County Sheriff Hank Ruland told the commission that he received a letter from the Wyoming Department of Transportation indicating that a recent traffic study indicated that traffic levels don't yet justify a traffic light for Pinedale.
