During its recent regular business meeting, the Wyoming Transportation Commission awarded $13.35 million in contracts for five Wyoming Department of Transportation construction projects. A $6.85 million bid was awarded to Gillette-based S and  S Builders LLC, for a mill and overlay project involving asphalt paving, structure work, traffic control, chip seal, grading, erosion control, milling and guardrail work on Wyoming Highway 95 north of Glenrock. The contract completion date is October 31, 2025. 

The commission awarded a more than $1.77 million bid to Cowley-based Wilson Bros. Construction Inc. for a spot slope flattening project involving grading, stormwater drainage work, fencing, traffic control, erosion control and aggregate surfacing work on approximately 7.5 miles of US Highway 310 in Big Horn and Park Counties.

Wilson Brothers Construction was also awarded a $1.51 million bid for a culvert project involving stormwater drainage work, traffic control and grading at various locations between Buffalo and Gillette in Campbell County.
