WYDOT Gives Annual Report  Johnson County Commissioners

Representatives from the Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) updated the Johnson County Commissioners, covering subjects from anticipated revenue to current and future projects.

Mark Gillett, Engineer for District Four which encompasses northeast Wyoming, gave the presentation during their last regular meeting.

Gillett said that WYDOT, due to funding and cost scenarios, continues to move from a Transportation Improvement Program to a Pavement Preservation Program, essentially maintaining the road system the best they can, and not moving forward with improving certain roads.

WYDOT expects to let $264.5 million in construction projects state-wide in 2015, some in District Four.

In 2015, district four projects include crack and seat, slab replacement and bridge rehabilitation of Interstate 25 from Buffalo to Kaycee on the Buffalo section from mile post 89 to mile post 96; and also an isolated reconstruction and resurfacing project on Interstate 90, Powder River East section from Buffalo to Gillette from Mile post 89 to mile post 96.

We will have more on WYDOT's presentation to the county commissioners throughout this week.
