Sheridan Avenue Repairs Scheduled for Next Year

The project can wait no longer.
The Wyoming Department of Transportation is beginning to make plans to repair Sheridan Avenue in Cody, from 10th Street to the top of the Greybull Hill at Stampede Avenue. Cody Beers with WYDOT told members of the Cody Chamber yesterday that the highway is in urgent need of repair, but due to resistance from the community, the project has been put off for almost 20 years.
Beers told the gathering yesterday that design plans are 90 percent complete. However, he says that they understand the importance of taking the needs of the community into consideration.
Beers pointed out that the concrete slabs in the highway are starting to come apart due to water erosion, and that if the repairs aren’t done now, a much more intensive reconstruction would need to take place.
Beers says that the construction is tentatively planned for the spring of 2020, pausing construction for two months in the summer, then starting up again in mid-August until weather considerations would bring a halt to the project. They would then complete the project in spring of 2021.
