Powell-Garland road work starting up

A $1.7 million pavement improvement project is tentaively scheduled to begin this week just east of Powell on U.S. Highway 14-A.

The project consists of shoulder flattening, milling of existing pavement, leveling, a 2-inch asphalt pavement overlay and chip seal between milepost 25.20 (just east of Homesteader Park) and milepost 29.39 (the intersection of U.S. 14-A and Wyoming Highway 114 at Garland).

Originally slated for Monday, the project was postponed due to this week’s snowstorm.

Wyoming Department of Transportation Resident Engineer Todd Frost said the contractor's work schedule calls for work to begin with work on the highway shoulders. Rotomilling of existing pavement is also scheduled for the upcoming week.

''Motorists should expect traffic control with use of a pilot vehicle and delays of up to 20 minutes,'' Frost said.

The contractor's work schedule is weather dependent and calls for the start of asphalt paving around May 1, Frost said. The expected completion date is Oct. 31.

The prime contractor is Mountain Construction of Lovell.
