Bridge Work Commences on South Fork
Written by Andrew-Rossi on October 9, 2017
A project repairing and upgrading state highway bridges is moving from the North Fork to the South Fork Road outside of Cody.
Bridge rehabilitation is scheduled to begin this week on a bridge on Wyoming highway 291, a little over three miles from the junction with highway 14/16/20 in Cody.
Wyoming Department of Transportation resident engineer Kaia Tharp of Thermopolis says that work on the North Fork is completed for this year, but will continue next summer, when concrete approach slabs are replaced at Grinnell Creek and the Shoshone River bridge.
The work is part of a $2.95 million bridge rehabilitation project on 18 bridges in northwest Wyoming. The work is scheduled in Big Horn, Fremont, Hot Springs and Park counties. Repairs and improvements include bridge deck repair, silica fume overlay, expansion joint replacement, and a few approach slab replacements.
