WYDOT Project to Begin on US 20 Thru Thermopolis
Written by Andrew-Rossi on April 21, 2020
Thermopolis is next on the docket for an extensive WYDOT construction project.
Another $3.3 million dollar highway improvement project that will stretch throughout the entire down begins this May, along a 2.6 mile stretch of US20/WY789. It will start near the Wyoming Department of Transportation office and continuing past the old National Guard Armory on the north edge of town. This means it will eventually run its way all the way through to the intersection of Broadway and US20 – the heart of town – and beyond.
The model of the project is extremely similar to the work currently been undertaken on Sheridan Avenue in Cody. There are 3 distinct phases of the construction and two-way traffic must be maintained at all times. Weekly public work progress meetings will occur at 2 p.m. every Tuesday beginning May 12 at the northeast corner of Thermopolis’ lone signalized intersection where the highway intersects with Main Street and the downtown business area. Citizens and business owners are invited to attend the weekly outdoor meetings – so long as they practice safe social distancing.
All work is required to be completed by November 30th, 2020.
