Cattle drive to delay traffic

Jun 7, 2013 - The Associated Press

MOOSE -- Motorists between Moran Junction and Elk Ranch flats will find out on Saturday that, at least in Wyoming, cattle drives always have the right of way.

Wranglers will be moving about 290 cattle from the Pinto Ranch of Buffalo Valley to the Elk Ranch pastures, which lie south of Moran Junction and the Buffalo Fork River.

Rangers from Grand Teton National Park will provide traffic control.

The drive will take from 6:45 a.m. to about 8:30 a.m. Traffic will be delayed for up to 30 minutes when the cattle reach the Buffalo Fork Bridge and clear the bridge and a swampy area south of the bridge.

To avoid the delay, motorists may choose to travel an alternate route through Grand Teton National Park.
