Transportation Commission Awards $25M in Highway Contracts
For the US 20 work, crews will widen and move a 12-mile section of road. Crews will make the shoulders six feet wide and keep the travel lane 24 feet wide. WYDOT is moving the road because widening the shoulders will bring the existing road too close to a nearby railroad’s right of way. The contract completion date is July 31, 2021.
Other contracts the commission awarded included pavement surfacing, sign installation and bridge repairs.
Simon Contractors also was the low bidder on a $3-million pavement contract on 6.6 miles of WYO 92 between Torrington and Huntley in Goshen County. Crews will perform a full-depth reclamation where they will pulverize the existing pavement and base, add cement to the mixture, reapply it and resurface the road. The cement will be added to help prevent moisture from getting inside the base. Crews will also perform minor bridge repairs. The contract completion date is October 31, 2020.
