Representatives from JLM Engineering, Johnson County and the Wyoming Department of Transportation go over the plan to rebuild Trabing Road south of Buffalo at a meeting Tuesday at JLM.

A public meeting with all entities concerned over the Trabing Road Project ended with everyone in agreement of what should be done, and by whom, and more inportantly, when.
County Commissioner Smokey Wildeman said he and the other commissioners are pleased with the outcome of the meeting.

The meeting came about after last week's county commissioner's meeting when County Road and Bridge, JLM Engineering and the Wyoming Department of Transportation realized they were not on the same page with the project.
JLM was drafting the plans for the 8-mile plus project, but understood it was to be a cost-cutting patchwork of paving and widening of the road. They originally began planning the project in 2007, but it was shelved at the request of the county because of a lack of available funding.
When the project was resurrected last year, the county and WyDOT believed the project to be a complete rebuild of the road. After a review last month, the discrepancies were discovered.
The meeting on Tuesday was called to go over what plans had been drafted and how they could be easily changed to still meet a construction schedule for this year.
JLM said they could get the necessary work with designs and legal descriptions of properties along the project and have them ready to present to Road and Bridge by the second week of April.
In the meantime, they will present to County Attorney Ken DeCock work for him to review as they complete it.
The project will begin construction this summer and be completed in 2012.
