JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - Crews are repairing metal netting on the cliffs above Teton Pass that helps keep rocks from falling onto Wyoming Highway 22.

The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports (https://tinyurl.com/qegsf2d ) the work is getting underway Monday.

Drivers can expect 20-minute delays because of the construction.

David Kaufman, an engineer for the Wyoming Department of Transportation, says the heavyweight metal mesh is a decade old. He says it has performed will but needs repairs.

Crews will also knock down loose rocks and clear ditches that parallel the highway.

The pass is west of Jackson.
