CASPER, Wyo. — Natrona County will close Kortes Road from south of Alcova dam to the intersection with Fremont Canyon Road starting Sept. 18, county officials said in a Monday press release.

The closure will allow final paving on the $9.2 million project to take place. Kortes Road is scheduled to be closed from 7 a.m. Sept. 18 through Oct. 8.

“Access to Miracle Mile or the Pedro Mountains will be via the established detour starting off of Highway 220 south and continuing on Pathfinder Road to Fremont Canyon to the intersection of Kortes Road,” the announcement states.

Closure information on segments 2–4 as well as the detour established on State Highway 220 to Pathfinder Road, Fremont Canyon Road and Kortes Road is available at natronacounty-wy.gov/kortes.

There are four phases of work on the road, and new closures and appropriate detours will be noted in advance, the announcement states.

“We ask that the public plan their travel with potential delays in mind due to the additional mileage that has been added by the detour,” it adds.
