JACKSON, Wyoming — The Wyoming Department of Transportation has closed Teton Pass due to a large crack in the road, causing unsafe driving conditions.
The road damage announcement came on Thursday just before noon. According to Idaho 511, State Highway 33, eastbound near the Idaho-Wyoming line, is closed. 

Transportation crews were told that the road had faulted, and a crack was seen in both lanes of travel, according to a social media. The crack “dropped vertically,” about 8 inches in some places. 

Maintenance crews are working to create a temporary patch. WYDOT’s geology department will investigate the cause.
There is no estimated time of reopening.
