Johnson County's TW Road Project is mostly complete, with only a handful of minor things left to do before it is finished, according to County Road and Bridge Supervisor Scott Pehringer.

Pehringer told the county commissioners at their recent meeting that the paving and striping is completed, except for passing zones.
The plan is for the county to chip and seal the roadway in the spring and the striping will need to be done again anyway, so the passing zones will be added then, according to Pehringer.

As a whole, Pehringer said the project is good for the county, and explained some of the smaller projects that still need to be completed.

The project was designed to widen and pave roughly three miles of TW Road from Highway 16 East to just past Mr. R's Auto Salvage.
A turning lane will be installed in the industrial area from Highway 16 to the old Pert's Towing building, with the road continuing to the end of the project as a two lane road with a safety shoulder.

Concerning future projects, Pehringer said the county will be discussing WYDOT's pavement overlay project on Buffalo's Main Street, and will be looking to “piggy back” on that project so the county can do a pavement overlay on the North and South Bypass Roads, and some paving work near the bridge on Rock Creek Road, including abutments at the bridge itself.
