Written by Andrew-Rossi on August 7, 2018
Traffic delays are expected between Meeteetse and Thermopolis this week as the Wyoming Department of Transportation improves the road on Highway 120.
The $2.5 million pavement improvement project is scheduled to begin Wednesday, August 8, between the intersection with Wyoming Highway 431 and the Gooseberry Rest Area. Wyoming Department of Transportation resident engineer Kaia Tharp of Thermopolis says each end of the project will be milled, including approach slabs of bridges and the major highway accesses to Gooseberry Rest Area and Gooseberry Road.
Tharp said motorists should expect traffic delays of up to 20 minutes and reduced speed limits inside the work zone. Mountain Construction Co., of Lovell is the prime contractor, and the completion date for the project is expected to be the end of this month.
