WYDOT Hopes to Minimize Disruption on Sheridan Avenue
Written by wendycorr on April 3, 2019
The Sheridan Avenue construction project scheduled to begin next spring will no doubt interrupt tourist season in Cody.
But the Wyoming Department of Transportation is working with local businesses to keep the disruption to a minimum.
Cody Mayor Matt Hall, who was in attendance last week at the open house hosted by WYDOT, says the Chamber of Commerce has been working closely with the department to make sure business owners see as little impact as possible.
According to engineers from WYDOT, they plan to work in two-block segments, completing each segment before moving on to the next, in order to minimize disruption to the entire downtown area. They will begin work in March of 2020 and suspend the project in mid-June, in order to keep traffic flowing during the busiest of the tourist season. Work will pick up again mid-August, with a projected completion time of October.
