Bates Road River Access Press Release 04/27/18

Driggs ID - Construction to replace the Teton River boat ramp at the Bates Road (Buxton) Bridge will begin on May 1. Teton River users should be advised that construction will close the existing boat ramp on the north side of the bridge. A temporary access site will be opened upstream at the existing parking area on the south side of Bates Road.  River users are encouraged to stop by the temporary access before putting on the river to ensure compatibility/availability for the day. Work is expected to continue on the site until the end of June.

This project will replace the existing boat ramp and parking at the Bates Road (Buxton) Bridge with a more user-friendly alternative. The new site will address the significant safety concerns of the old access by moving the access ramp and the parking to the same side of the road, creating better visibility for oncoming traffic from the Bates Road, and creating increased separation between the Bates Road and the user access area. The new site will have a wider boat ramp to accommodate multiple boats, improved traffic flow, as well as a vault toilet. 

Construction of this access point is being generously funded by Idaho Department of Fish and Game. Teton County has provided labor and materials.  Future updates will be posted here.
