Written by Andrew-Rossi on June 29, 2018
A project to upgrade retaining walls in Shell Canyon will cause traffic delays this coming month.
A $1.8 million project to replace timber retaining walls with mechanically-stabilized earth, or MSE, retaining walls is scheduled to begin in early July on Highway 14 east of Greybull.
Wyoming Department of Transportation resident engineer Michael Miller of Basin said prime contractor Wilson Brothers Construction of Cowley plans to begin work in Shell Canyon after the July 4 holiday. He adds that during work, there will be single-lane traffic past each wall location, and traffic delays of up to five minutes are expected at each location.
The Highway 14 wall construction locations are between 23 and 25 miles east of Greybull. Contract completion date is Oct. 31st of this year.
