Traffic Delays Begin at Climbing Area

Written by on April 17, 2018

Fourteen days of continuous traffic delays started yesterday morning as a parking improvement project began near a popular climbing area west of Cody.
Wyoming Department of Transportation resident engineer Todd Frost said prime contractor S&L Industrial of Cowley has a 14-day work window to remove the existing guardrail and replace it, and complete installation of curb and gutter.
From now through the 30th of April, the contractor will have one-way traffic with 24-hour flagging, a single-lane roadway and a pilot car, due to the unprotected tunnel ends and steep drop-offs where the curb and gutter, double gutter and median are being placed. Frost says the maximum total delays will be 10 minutes, except between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. when the delays will be 20 minutes because of the rockfall mitigation project west of the tunnels.
The parking area at the popular climbing area is located in between the tunnels on U.S. 14/16/20 near Cody. Frost notes that the parking lot won’t be opened for public use until chip sealing and striping is complete in June.
