Old BTNF A-Frame to be demolished tomorrow

(Jackson, Wyo.) - A staple of North Cache Street will be demolished tomorrow. According to the Bridger-Teton National Forest, the old A-Frame administrative offices will come down tomorrow. The BTNF staff has been out of the building since August 2015. According to Mary Cernicek, public affairs officer for the Bridger-Teton National Forest, the organization identified the need for an updated facility because the old one was not up to fire code, sinking in the center and was not energy efficient. Additionally, the Forest Service identified the need for more employee housing and a warehouse space for the fire cache. The old A-frame building has been the home to the Forest Service offices since the 1960s and was originally built for only $175,845.80.

Following the construction of the new office building, the organization will begin work on housing and a fire cache warehouse on the property. For now, the forest service is in temporary information trailers to help the public and sell permits on The Wyoming Game and Fish property. Visitors will be able to get permits and Forest Service information at the Interagency Visitor Center on North Cache. *Feature Photo: h/t Bridger-Teton National Forest / Pitchengine Communities* #buckrail #news
