New digital message signs/web cameras coming to northwest Wyoming

Posted

Work is underway to install seven new digital message signs/web cameras throughout northwest Wyoming.

The prime contractor on the $1.4 million project is Advanced Electric, LLC, of Casper.

The new digital message signs/web cameras will be located at:

  • U.S. 14/16/20 (milepost 48.39), about 2 miles west of Cody;
  • U.S. 26/287 (milepost 8.1), about 8 miles east of Moran Junction near the Blackrock Ranger Station;
  • U.S. 16/20 (milepost 202.87), about 2 miles south of Greybull;
  • U.S. 16 (milepost 3.45), about 3 1/2 miles east of Worland;
  • U.S. 20 (milepost 164.17), about 1 mile south of  Worland;
  • U.S. 20 (milepost 127.86), about 5 1/2 miles south of Thermopolis near Wind River Canyon;
  • U.S. 20 (milepost 101.18), about 1 mile north of Shoshoni.

Installation of a U.S. 20 relay tower is also part of the communications project at milepost 128.99, about 4 miles south of Thermopolis.

The digital signs/web cameras won’t be operational until next spring.

Work started Aug. 12 on U.S. 26/287 near the Blackrock Ranger Station, and includes grading for guardrail and guardrail placement.

“The project will move to Shoshoni, Thermopolis, Worland, Greybull and Cody over the next month,” said Kaia Tharp, Wyoming Department of Transportation resident engineer in Thermopolis. “Work will then start in the same order to install the drilled shafts, conduit, etc. Placement of the digital-message signs signs will be completed next spring.”

Meanwhile, the Wyoming Transportation Commission recently awarded $1 million and $901,355 contracts to S & L Industrial, of Cowley, for passing and no passing sign installation contracts at various locations. The signs will be erected across the Big Horn Basin — in Park County, Big Horn, Hot Springs and Washakie counties — as well as in Albany, Carbon, Fremont, Laramie, Lincoln, Sublette, Sweetwater, Teton and Uinta counties by Oct. 31, 2020.
