Single-lane traffic in each direction is expected this spring and summer on a construction project on Highway 14A going through Powell.

The $2.31 million project includes removal of medians and installation of new roadway lighting from Fair Street to Park County Road 8 in Powell, according to Wyoming Department of Transportation resident engineer Todd Frost of Cody.

Frost said new roadway lighting will be placed on the canal bank on the south side of the roadway, reconstruction of the intersection of 1st and Evarts Street will occur, along with a new asphalt overlay from Clark Street to Homesteader Park.

The contractor is currently scheduled to start work April 10 from Fair Street to Clark Street on the median removal and ADA upgrades, including replacement of broken curb and gutter double, and sidewalk. This first part of the project is currently scheduled to be completed by the middle of June.

Single-way traffic in each direction could remain 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, depending on the work being donetic, although normal working hours will be 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday.
