WYDOT Shares Info on Work & Delays at Shoshone River Bridge
Written by Andrew-Rossi on May 19, 2022
W.Y.D.O.T.’s update on its Shoshone River Bridge project includes more information on times and delays drivers between Cody and Ralston will want to know.
Earlier this week, work began on three W.Y.D.O.T. road projects in Park County. One of these projects involves pavement and guardrail improvement for the section of U.S. 14A that crosses the Shoshone River Bridge.
This project involves milling 1” of existing pavement, overlaying with 2” of Hot Plant Mix Pavement and Wearing Course, and removing and replacing the existing guardrail on the Shoshone River Bridge.
Guardrail repair and replacement on the bridge are currently underway. While this is undertaken, W.Y.D.O.T. reminds drivers of what they can expect when driving in the work zone.
The contractor – Contractor Century Companies, Inc., of Lewistown, Montana – must maintain simultaneous two-way traffic during non-working hours.
There will always be simultaneous two-way traffic through the 1.85-mile work zone (Milepost 5.59 and Milepost 7.54) between 7:00 and 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. for commuter traffic. Therefore, delays – if any – will be minimal during those time frames.
The contractor must limit delays to less than 10 minutes through the project at all other times.
In addition, the contractor will coordinate the passage of oversized loads and farm equipment throughout the project’s duration.
During this week’s guardrail work, traffic is one way in each direction with a reduced speed to 45 M.P.H. There are no other delays associated with the work.
Questions concerning the project should be directed to Todd Frost, Resident Engineer, W.Y.D.O.T., Cody, 587-2220.
