If you’ve ever traveled the Belfry Highway out of Cody, you know that section where you feel like you’re riding a roller coaster just past the turnoff to the Chief Joseph Highway? Well, WYDOT crews have started working on that.
Cody maintenance workers rotomilled a section of bumps off the surface of Wyoming 120 Monday, about 17 miles west of Cody. The section of roadway at milepost 117 is scheduled to be patched in September.
Wyoming Department of Transportation maintenance foreman Jim Berry of Cody says there are serious soil subgrade issues in this area which has led to large bumps, or heaves, in the pavement.
A WYDOT construction project, tentatively planned in 2020-21, will deal with subgrade issues at milepost 117 and other areas of Highway 120 between 15 and 18 and a half miles north of Cody. The project estimate for the roadway repairs is $4.23 million.
