The Wyoming Department of Transportation announced paving operations on a ten mile section of US 14/16 between Ucross and the town of Clearmont in Sheridan County will resume on April 4.
WYDOT’s contractor, Croell, Inc. has been replacing guardrails near two bridge structures and are now ready to begin soft spot repairs at three locations between mile markers 27.64 and 38.10. The road base at these three locations has failed due to subgrade issues.
While appearing on Sheridan Media’s Public Pulse program, Senior Public Information Specialist for WYDOT’s District 4 Laura Dalles told listeners a little about the project and the need behind it.
According to Dalles, in addition to new pavement, sub-contractors will be installing flexible delineators, upgraded signage, and installing new fence throughout the project limits.
The traveling public will encounter daytime flagging operations, one lane of travel at the soft spot repair locations, reduced speed limits, and heavy truck traffic. Traffic will be open to two-way traffic at night with areas of temporary surfacing and reduced speed limits.
The projected completion date of the project is July 29, 2022.
