Many people will be traveling this 4th of July weekend as they get together with family and friends. Some make very detailed plans for their travels, and one thing to consider is highway construction. The Wyoming Department of Transportation has several projects underway in the area.
The Brundage Lane construction will still make lanes tight for another month or more, although, the passable lanes will shift to the south side of the road in the next couple of weeks.
Elsewhere, what should you expect if you’re headed over the Bighorn Mountains on U.S. Highway 14?
That’s WYDOT Region 4 Public Involvement Specialist Ronda Holwell. She says that once work resumes, drivers should expect to encounter loose gravel and areas of no pavement during the rest of the project.
The daily delays for blasting on the highway are finished. Now that they have excavated that hillside near Sand Turn, the realignment project can continue. Most of the debris has been cleaned up and new striping was painted this week.
Neither project is expected to be completed this season.
