April 1st marks the first day of a $2.3 million pavement improvement project west of Meeteetse.
Wyoming Department of Transportation resident engineer Todd Frost of Cody says work on Highway 290 is slated to begin Monday. Contractors will be milling existing pavement, followed by slope flattening and guard rail work. Paving is tentatively scheduled for mid-May.
The project begins about 6 miles west of Meeteetse, continuing 5.2 miles west to the end of the state-maintained section of Highway 290. Motorists should expect traffic delays of up to 20 minutes with traffic controlled by flaggers and a pilot vehicle.
But during guardrail improvements, traffic will be one-way with a portable traffic signal 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, until work is completed. Drivers should prepare for traffic delays of 5 to 10 minutes during the guardrail improvements.
Prime contractor on the Meeteetse-Pitchfork project is McGarvin-Moberly Construction Co., of Worland. Contract completion date is October 31st.
