SYP: Cody Beers, WyDOT
Written by Mac Watson on May 9, 2023
Cody Beers, Public Relations Specialist for the Wyoming Department of Transportation, spoke about how much winter affected the roads in the Cowboy State, especially along the I-80 corridors. Snowplows had to deal with above-average snow totals combined with 50 MPH winds that causes 6-7 foot drifts. With manpower down, it was a struggle and put the department in a $10M dollar hole. Cody spoke about where WyDOT will find the money to make up for the shortfall as well as projects going on around Park County this summer.
