Beginning Monday (April 1st) construction work on the remaining 2 blocks of the downtown Sheridan Main Street project will resume, but work could take a little longer than anticipated.

The actual work will start with the Main and Loucks Street intersection and proceed southward to the Coffeen Avenue intersection.

There will also be a little work done on about 1 block of Coffeen Avenue east of Main Street.

Aside from laying down fresh concrete and making street corner sidewalks more ADA compliant, crews will also be replacing water and sewer lines underneath.

Cort Headquist is the Project Manager of Oftedal Construction from the Casper area, which is the company that will be doing the concrete work.

He says the number of available workers for the underground pipe work is coming up short.

“With the size of the crews that are available to put on this job this year, we’ll have one underground crew running down installing water line, last year we had 2. Other than that the rest of the project will have about the same amount of people, as far as for removals and grade work and stuff is what we did last year.”

WYDOT says public meetings will be held each Tuesday beginning April 16th at the Century One office, located on the corner of Main and Works Streets.

Construction work is anticipated to be finished by the middle of August.
