Wyoming Department of Transportation Senior Public Relations Specialist for District 4 Laura Dalles reports WYDOT and its contractor, Oftedal Construction will begin work on the second phase of the Downtown Sheridan Main Street project on Monday, April 1 – weather permitting. 

According to Dalles, Phase II will include the blocks between Loucks Street and Coffeen Avenue/Burkitt Street. Phase II is a continuation of last year’s project and will include replacing water lines, upgrading sidewalks and intersections to meet ADA requirements, upgrading traffic signal boxes, and pouring a new concrete roadway.

This year’s closures will run from Loucks Street to the north side of the Coffeen Avenue/Burkitt Street intersection. 

Beginning April 1, Main Street from Brundage Street to the north side of the Coffeen Avenue/Burkitt intersection will be closed to traffic. 

In order to tie into the new utilities at Loucks, Oftedal will close Main Street between Brundage Street and Loucks Street to traffic for a short time to complete that work. The Brundage block will be closed to traffic, but open to pedestrians. When the intersection of Loucks Street is complete, the Coffeen Avenue/Burkitt Street intersection will close.

In an earlier interview, Dalles said labor shortages have resulted in a pushed out timeline for completion this year.
