According to a WYDOT Press Release, crews with Andreen Hunt Construction, Inc. today, were able to finish laying temporary pavement over a large box culvert that was recently installed across the roadway. That was the final obstacle in the reconstruction project preventing the opening of the road.
There is scheduled water line work set for February, 2015 however that work would impact one side of the road and wouldn't close it to through traffic. Next summer, work will resume on the final portions of the reconstruction, south of where the new pavement currently ends. There will be some full closures associated with that job.
