The Wyoming Department of Transportation is planning to replace a western Wyoming bridge where a bicyclist fell over a guardrail and died last year but the project won't happen until at least 2016.
At 29 inches high, the guardrail on the bridge is more than a foot below the modern safety standard of at least 42 inches high.
Robert Verhaaren lost control of his bike during a race in September. The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports he died after he went over the guardrail and fell nearly 60 feet into the Snake River.
WyDOT officials say the 40-year-old bridge on U.S. Highway 89 has been on their list of bridges to replace. They say the department won't have funding for the work until at least October 2016.
