The projects are as follows:

  • Crews with Bituminous Paving, Inc. will begin the project in Carbon County on U.S. Highway 30/287 near Medicine Bow, between mile markers 264-279, with the work being done in two.
  • Next crews will shift to Albany County, where they’ll work on Wyoming Highway 130 east of the turnoff for Wyoming Highway 11, between mile markers 10-21.5.
  • Crews will also chip seal a portion of U.S. Highway 287 south of Laramie between mile markers 404.25-412.5.
  • Crews will then move to work in Laramie County, starting with a portion of Wyoming Highway 210/Happy Jack Road west of Cheyenne between mile markers 10.38-20.45.
  • A chip seal will also be placed on Interstate 25 both northbound and southbound between mile markers 24.2-30.75.

Motorists can expect delays, as each location except I-25 will require the use of a pilot car to direct traffic on one lane of a highway while crews work on another.

At this time, the estimated timeframe for this project is unknown. This article will be updated as more information becomes available.
