The current runway at Jackson Hole Airport (JAC) has reached the end of its life cycle and the airport will require a runway closure to both airline and general aviation operations from April 11th, 2022 until June 28, 2022 to continue to meet the required safety standards.
The Jackson Hole airport runway is in need of a full reconstruction which will include a 78-day runway closure. The Checkpoint and Hold Room project will begin on January 19th of 2022 and is expected to be completed by June 28 of 2022, to coincide with the runway reopening. From January of 2022 through April of 2022, travelers will be using a temporary Security Checkpoint equipped with three screening lanes, until the runway closure begins.
Restaurant construction will begin in April of 2022 and is expected to be completed by the end of November of 2022. Interim food and beverage options will be available in a limited capacity, post-security, throughout the duration of this project.
These projects will allow JAC to operate safely and support airline operations while enhancing the traveler experience. Safety, efficiency, and being good stewards to the environment. You can find more information available on the Airport’s website as the project starts and details are developed.

Because of the natural geography of this town, there are actually only a few roads leading in to the Jackson Hole valley. If you’re driving from points south, west and north you’re probably going to be arriving on either U.S. Routes 191 or 89. If you’re coming into our valley from points west or Yellowstone, you could also drive in over the famous Teton Pass Hwy 22 from Victor, Idaho. Driving to Jackson Hole from the east is the most straightforward. You can come in over Togwotee Pass on U.S. 26 from Riverton, and Casper, Wyoming. The typical route to get here from further east is by taking Interstate 80 to Rock Springs, Wyoming and taking U.S. 191 north 3 hours to Jackson.
