Construction Delays Expected North and West of Cody
Written by Andrew-Rossi on May 21, 2018
It’s construction season in Wyoming, so drivers should expect traffic delays most of the summer.
Work is scheduled to begin today on the Cottonwood Creek bridge, about seven miles north of Cody on Highway 120. The $2.95 million bridge rehabilitation project is being conducted by Reiman Corporation of Cheyenne. Kaia Tharp, WYDOT resident engineer in Thermopolis, says there will be one-way traffic controlled by portable traffic signals for about a month.
After work is completed on this bridge, the crews will move west of Cody and continue rehabilitation work on two bridges – one bridge is 36 miles west of Cody, and the other is about 48 miles west of Cody. Tharp says that again, while repairs are under way, there will be one-way traffic controlled by portable traffic signals for about a month at each bridge.
The contractor is planning epoxy overlays on the three Cody-area bridges in July.
The current bridge repairs are part of a bridge rehabilitation project on 18 bridges in northwest Wyoming. The work is scheduled in Big Horn, Fremont, Hot Springs and Park counties. Contract completion date for the bridge improvements is Oct. 31st.
