WYDOT: Seasonal paving operations begin around Laramie County in May


CASPER, Wyo — Seasonal paving operations in various locations around Laramie County will begin in the month of May, the Wyoming Department of Transportation said in release Monday.

“Weather permitting, work will begin Wednesday near Albin on Wyoming Highway 216 between mile markers 12.6-13,” the release said. “After crews wrap up there, work will begin on WYO 214 near Carpenter between mile markers 6.3-7.1.”

Following are other locations in Laramie County maintenance crews plan to pave this year — not necessarily in project order: 

 WYO 211/Horse Creek Road between mile markers 22.8-23.4 

WYO 219/Yellowstone Road between mile markers 5.1-5.4 

 Interstate 25 at mile marker 8.84 

 U.S. Highway 30/Lincolnway between mile markers 366.6-366.9 (west of Whitney Road)  The Interstate 80 westbound off-ramp to southbound I-25 

WYDOT notes that above list is not necessarily in project order; crews may move between these locations based on weather conditions, material and equipment availability, or other factors. 

Motorists should stay alert if driving through any of these areas in the coming weeks and expect potential delays, including due to lane closures, flaggers, reduced speeds, or other traffic changes, WYDOT said.

Delays are especially likely once crews begin work in the I-25/I-80 interchange.

“Traffic should expect a detour during this portion of the project,” WYDOT said. “Specific dates and detour routes for this portion of the project will be released once the schedule has been finalized.”

 The interchange paving project  “is expected to be complete in about one month,” WYDOT said, adding that all project scheduling is subject to change.
