County Sees Savings Of $34K on Trabing Project

Johnson County has seen an estimated savings of nearly $34,000 on the Trabing Road overlay project from Old Highway 87 to Interstate 90, according to Road and Bridge Supervisor Scott Pehringer.

Pehringer said the original engineer's estimate was roughly $157,000 to overlay pavement, widen and improve the nearly one mile of roadway. The actual cost when completed was about $123,000.

The project was “piggy-backed,” or bid along with another Wyoming Department of Transportation (or WYDOT) project, which is how the county saved money, he said.

Pehringer also reported that county crews were working on an overlay project on about a mile of Lake Ridge Road.

During the flooding eastern Johnson County earlier this spring, the county spent nearly $109,000 on two projects during three separate events to clean up debris and strengthen sections of roads.
Almost $46,000 was spent in the cleanup of the Dead Horse Road area and roughly $63,000 on Powder River Road, which he said had some damage as well.

And Pehringer reported that he will be taking care of the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (or CMAQ) Dust Abatement application for 2016, which is due in September.
