The Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals is slated to hear Wyoming’s wolf appeal in a federal courtroom in Salt Lake City next week. The hearing is slated for Monday, March 3, at the U.S. Courthouse in Salt Lake. Oral arguments will be heard in both the State of Wyoming’s case against the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service over rejection of the state wolf management plan, as well as the Wyoming Wolf Coalition’s arguments.
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 Trail’s 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. For more information on this project, contact Dave Booth at the Pinedale Ranger District at 307-367-4326.
