Teton Highway, or 2400 East, is closed from 400 North to 500 North until Oct. 28 at most for a city project.

Saint Anthony Mayor Donald Powell said the closure is a result of a water and sewer project. The city is putting in water and sewer for people in the area that were annexed.

He said the city could not do the project where they originally wanted to because of material that was already in the ground. As a result, the project was moved further north along the highway, resulting in the highway closure.

The highway closed on Monday, with the plan on remaining closed for 30 days, according to a Facebook post from the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office.

“I’m hoping it gets done quicker,” Powell said.

The closed portion of the highway is one lane for businesses access. Other drivers are to take a detour marked by signs.
